    One mistake in a piece of code can generate more than one error; THATS FOR SURE!! I've gotten like 6 errors and a couple warnings from one line before.

    I know, but the error counter kept going like crazy, on 1 line!

    depends on compiler settings aswell, if its uisng pedantic or strict ansi, you wil get more errors and warnings.

    NO WAY
    strict ansi or not, there aren't even 2000 characters on one line to generate that many errors, it's a bug in borland. Post the code.

    Does it loop? Step through the code in the debugger.

    wow, 2000 errors? Usually after about 20, my compiler says:

    Error: Too many Errors.
