    error C2059: syntax error : '('

    Why do I get this error?

    Code:
     
    do{
    				       (linia_tren->dades_parades)++;
    }while(strcmp(parada1, (*linia_tren).(*dades_parades).nom_parada) != 0  && strcmp(parada2, (*linia_tren).(*dades_parades).nom_parada) != 0);
    Here there are the types declarations:
    Code:
    typedef struct
    {
       char nom_parada[MAX_NOM];
       int distancia_anterior;
       int temps_anterior;
    } parada;
    
    typedef struct
    {
       char nom_linia[MAX_NOM];
       int n_parades;
       parada *dades_parades;
    } linia;
    And variables

    Code:
    char nom_linia [MAX_NOM], parada1 [MAX_NOM], parada2 [MAX_NOM];
       linia *linia_tren;

    Instead of:
    Code:
    (*linia_tren).(*dades_parades).nom_parada
    you probably wanted to write:
    Code:
    linia_tren->dades_parades->nom_parada
    or if you insist on the longer version:
    Code:
    (*(*linia_tren).dades_parades).nom_parada
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
