Help with c++...methods, constructors,arrays, classes...

hi guys.. im just having a nightmare solving this assignment i have.... Ive done quite alot but now im stuck.. i hope somebody can help me... pleaes bare with me:

ok so here is the situation:

1 - i created the CBook.h in which i created definitions for ADT for a book.
- you can see the file code below...im not sure about the authors as it
needs to be an array of up to 4 authors..(i dont think i did that :( )
2 - i also created the CBook.cpp where i wrote the class implementations:
- here im not sure about the "isAuthor" method as it needs to accept
all the values a book object needs and assigns them to the object.
3 - finally the main program the book.cpp file (the driver program).
- the thing that needs to be done here is:

1 - Create an array that contains one author to be used to pass to the setBookInfo method. Declare a signle book object using values you make up. Assign the object values using the setBookInfo method. Display the contents of the object.

2 - Declare an array in the driver program of 15 book objects called bookArray. Declare an integer which keeps track of how many elemnts are in the array. Write a function called populateArray which accepts the book array and a reference argument of the count of how many elements. The function will open the supplied file and assign the book information to book objects wihin the array.

3 - the main program should loop around displaying all the book information read in.

4 - Ask the user to enter the name of an Author. Write a loop that will look to see which books have that author and for each such book displays the book title.

Now here is how the input file looks: without the comments

5 -- this just says that there is 5 records
C++Programing: From Problem Analysis to Program Design -- this is the title
ABC -- this is the publisher
2000 -- this is the year
52.50 -- this is the price
20 -- this is the quantity
1 -- this says that there is one author
Malik, D.S. -- this is the author // and then so on... with the others

here i played with the main program but im really stuck::

Code:
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>

#include "CBook.h"

using namespace std;

//void populateArray(

void main()
{
	string title;
	string publisher;
	string authors;
	int year;
	double price;
	int quantity;

	int index = 4;

    ifstream infile;
	infile.open("C:\\Documents and Settings\\Magas\\Desktop\\SCHOOL\\C++Assign3\\Assignment3\\bookData2.txt");

	CBookProperties myArray[4];

	//infile >> title >> publisher >> year >> price >> quantity;
	for(int i = 0; i < index; i++)
	{

		getline(infile, title);
		getline(infile, publisher);
		infile >> year;
		infile >> price;
		infile >> quantity;
		
		myArray[i].setBookInfo(title, publisher, authors, year, price, quantity);
	}

	for(int i = 0; i < index; i++)
		myArray[i].printInfo();
}
please if somebody can help me a little bit with the main program ... and please if you can check if i did everything correctly up until now? .... any help is very much appreciated... :4-dontkno
