    error with new instants of classes

    hi, I keep getting this error when I was compiling with dev c++
    13 C:\Dev-Cpp\Projects\Crypter\main.cpp expected primary-expression before ';' token

    Code:
    case IDC_BTN_SUBMIT:
    {
         REPLACE or;
         Sub(or);
    }
    break;
    
    and the header file
    
    class REPLACE {
         char* in;
         char* plain;
         char* encrypt;
         int p, e;
         int len;
    };
    
    void Sub(REPLACE);

    The word "or" is a reserved word in C++, so perhaps that would cause a problem. Try renaming the variable...

    Thanks. That solved the problem. Must be more careful about names...
