    Char Buffer filtering

    Hi,

    I am trying to filter the recieved buffer for a socket server app. below is the code segment.

    Code:
    while(*inBuffer != '\0') 
    	{
    	*buff++ = *inBuffer++;
    	}
    	*buff='\0';
    where as it returns an error

    d:\dotnet\wserver\wserver\netres.h(31) : error C2105: '++' needs l-value

    can anybody help please?

    Thank you,

    Thomas

    Is that code actually in netres.h ?

    Is it inside a macro? Because that's the only code you should have in a header file.

    How did you call that macro (assuming it is)?
    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.

    Also, did you create a macro called buff or inBuffer?

    Correct. It was not supposed to be under header file. I moved it to the source with some changes and its fine. thank you.
