Question details
write in c++
This lab will exercise your understanding of some of the concepts covered in Chapter 9:  
  arrays, structures
  
1.  Create a file that contains 3 rows of data of the form:

First Name Middle Name Last Name Month Day Year Month Day Year GPA.  

This file represents student data consisting of first name, middle name, last name, registration month,
registration day, registration year, birth month, birth day, birth year, current gpa.

...or you may download the data file  inPut.txt.

Create a program that:

2.  Declares a date structure consisting of month, day, year.

3.  Declares a structure containing student data: first name, middle name, last name, gpa, registration
    date using the date structure previously declared and birth date using the date structure
    previously declared.
    
4.  Places the function prototypes and structures in a header file (*.h).  Include the header file in the
    main program.
    
5.  Declares an array variable of the student structure that can hold 3 students.

6.  Opens the file.  Write code to check the file state.  If the file fails to open, 
    display a message and exit the program.

7.  Write a function that accepts the file pointer and structure array as parameters and reads each
    row into the structure.
    
8.  Write a function that accepts the array structure as a parameter.  Ensure the array cannot
    be modified in the function.  Output the data in the structure using appropriate labels and
    messages.  Ensure the data is readable.
    
9.  Call both functions from main.
