    While trying to convert my program from C++ to C, i'm getting lots of errors.

    Can anyone tell me what these errors mean:

    syntax error before & token

    [Warning no] semicolon at end of struct or union

    syntax error before '=' token

    [Warning] data definition has no type or storage class

    It would be a nice start, but the errors are kinda self explanatory.

    I've deleted it.

    Sorry for the waste of board space.

    I thank you both for the tips you gave me.

    That was an incredible waste of board space. You don't need five thousand lines of code just for a few errors.
    1 - Errors give line numbers, even if they're just "close to this" guesses.
    2 - Look at your code, find the line number, read it (or post it in this case).
    3 - This is the C board. Your code is C++.
    Code:
    printf("              C++ Calculator\n");
    C doesn't have a 'string' data type. It doesn't have references. Etc.

    [edit]
    I see you mentioned you're converting from one to the other. Well for starters, get rid of all the things that are C++ only, such as what I mentioned above. Also, some of these really are simple. For example, when it says you don't have a semicolon at the end of a structure, that's pretty much what it means.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Holy crap. Umm, this is wrong:

    Code:
    extern double calc(char* , int&);
    That is too much code to read through, try and find out where the errors are occuring and read some of the C FAQs here on this site.

    Well, he did say he was converting from C++ to C.



    [EDIT v2]


    Damn you!
