    prog wont work

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <ctime>
    #include <cstdlib>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main();
    {
        int gok;
        int randgetal;
        cout<<"Guess the number i have in mind\n";
        srand((unsigned)time(0));
        randgetal = rand()
        cin >> gok;
        cin.ignore();
        if (gok > randgetal);
           {
                cout<<"Lower!\n";
                }
        if (gok < randgetal);
           {
                cout<<"Higher!\n";
                }
        if (gok == randgetal);
           {
                cout<<"well done\n";
                }
        else ()
             {
                 return main();
                 }
    }
    the error messages are
    8 expected unqualified-id before '{' token
    8 expected `,' or `;' before '{' token

    Code:
    int main();
    defines your main function to be ";" -- that is, the empty statement -- and then you have a bunch of stuff in braces that doesn't mean anything.

    Not only that. After else you should remove '()', after the conditions on your if statements remove ';', and after randgetal = rand() insert an ';'.
    Now it will compile but you have no chance on guessing the number, because the number changes at every step of the recursion, since you initialize the seed at each step with current time.
