    Compile error ?

    I am not experienced in c programming.
    I met a compile error like following

    [gary@localhost hw10]$ gcc prog1.c
    hw10.c:5: error: expected ‘=’, ‘,’, ‘;’, ‘asm’ or ‘__attribute__’ before ‘isLeap’

    I searched on google and found quite a few people have similar errors like me.
    Someone comment this is because losing semicolon in struct definition or so.
    I just check it out
    but still not work.

    More strange, if I use g++ to compile
    it woks.
    [gary@localhost hw10]$ g++ prog1.c
    [gary@localhost hw10]$

    But I think I am writing original c codes without any c++ syntax?


    Here is the codes
    prog1.c

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include "book.h"
    #include "date.h"
    
    bool isLeap(int year) {
       if (year % 400 == 0 || (year % 100 != 0 && year % 4 == 0)) return true;
       else return false;
    };
    book.h
    Code:
      1 #ifndef BOOK_H
      2 #define BOOK_H
      3
      4 enum Type {NOVEL, COMICS, MANUAL, TEXTBOOK};
      5
      6 struct Book{
      7    char title[128];
      8    enum Type type;
      9    char ISBN[128];
     10    char authors[128];
     11    unsigned int importance;
     12 };
     13
     14 #endif
    date.h
    Code:
      1 #ifndef DATE_H
      2 #define DATE_H
      3
      4 struct Date {
      5    unsigned int year;
      6    unsigned int month;
      7    unsigned int day;
      8 };
      9
     10 #endif
    I would really apprecite for any comment..

    The bool keyword is from C++, although it is available in C with respect to the 1999 edition of the C standard, which is not the default for gcc.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
