    How about actually posting your code? How about READING THIS FIRST like you were supposed to? How about learning to ask smart questions while you're at it?

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    I don't know, what do you think? We might be able to help you if you gave us more detail, such as the exact error messages and the code that produces them.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    It means your compiler was written by druids for running on the stone henge computer.

    That is, it pre-dates any and all ANSI-C standards

    So ideally, you should get yourself something with a proper ANSI badge on it rather than a pretend ANSI badge
    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.

    ROFL. I come here frusterated and looking for advice, and all my frustration melted away after reading this.
