    Bad Parameter ???

    Okay so i'm reading petzold's book trying to get this program to compile, this is the second program of his that has done this to me, it gives me the following errors

    \\sndc1\users\jwallace\progra~1\api\devcaps1.c:5: warning: invalid character in macro parameter name

    \\sndc1\users\jwallace\progra~1\api\devcaps1.c:5: badly punctuated parameter list in `#define'

    which all point to this
    Code:
    #define NUMLINES((int)(sizeof devcaps / sizeof devcaps[0]))
    what is wrong with it???? it is exactly like it is in the book. if it matters i am using dev-cpp and compiled it as a c source
    Oi Oi Oi!!!!
