I need to make a class that is recursively defined, specifiacally a class for a "person", with a name, mother, and father. Basically what I need is:
class person
{private:
char name[20];
person mother, father, sibling;

};

but this obviously doesn''t work because I am using variables of type "person" inside the definition. Now, I know there is a way to do this, because I have done it but I can''t remember how Any help would be appreciated.

use a pointer
