    incompatible types in assignment
    Short answer, trying to put a square peg into a round hole.

    Eg.
    double foo = "hello world";
    Doesn't make any sense does it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
