    Most common errors

    What is the most common error when writing C++? Speaking for myself it is a close call between missing a ';' and capitalize one letter to much ..like..MyINteger. Thankfully they are both very easy to find and corrct.

    Sigh, I do it all the time - compile a proggie that should be a console as a win32 app (or the other way around)

    My biggest problem on my program at work is when I have a stroke of genius and figure out how to solve a problem, only to be interuppted mid-line by a phone call or smth. I went through my code the other day and found tons of lines that were halfway complete - I had at least 3 or 4 that were just
    PrintString(dest,

    (before someone asks me, because I know it's coming - the compiler I'm doing this on only supports output by character - that's why I had to write my own function for it)
