#include <string>

class PlMessageHeader
{
std::string m_ThreadSender;
std::string m_ThreadReceiver;

//return true if the messages are equal, false otherwise
inline bool operator == (const PlMessageHeader &b) const
{
return ( (b.m_ThreadSender==m_ThreadSender) &&
(b.m_ThreadReceiver==m_ThreadReceiver) );
}

//return true if the message is for name
inline bool isFor (const std::string &name) const
{
return (m_ThreadReceiver==name);
}

//return true if the message is for name
inline bool isFor (const char *name) const
{
return (m_ThreadReceiver==name);// since name type is std::string, it becomes unsafe if name == NULL
}
};

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
