    Error I cannot fix

    Hey guys

    I have written this really simple program and when I compile using VC++ 8.0 express I get 2 errors I cannot fix as they apply to a header file within the compiler's own directory.

    Here is the source I have written:

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    // function prototype
    int qualityPoints ( int );
    
    // main function - driver 
    //
    int main ( void ) {
    	int value = 0;
    
    	std::cout << "Enter value to pass range of 1 to 100 ( enter -1 "
    		<< "to quit ): ";
    	std::cin >> value;
    
    	while ( value != -1 ) {
    		if (( value < 1 ) || ( value >= 101 )) {
    			std::cout << "\nIgnoring value - out of range!\n\n";
    		}
    
    		std::cout << "Value returned was: " << qualityPoints( value )
    			<< std::endl;
    	}
    
    	std::cin.get();
    	std::cin.ignore();
    
    	return 0;
    }
    
    // function to return a value pending on the value passed
    int qualityPoints ( int x ) {
    	int point = 0;
    
    	if (( x >= 90 ) && ( x <= 100 )) {
    		point = 4;
    	}
    
    	else if (( x >= 80 ) && ( x <= 89 )) {
    		point = 3;
    	}
    
    	else if (( x >= 70 ) && ( x <= 79 )) {
    		point = 2;
    	}
    
    	else if (( x >= 60 ) && ( x <= 69 )) {
    		point = 1;
    	}
    
    	else {
    		point = 0;
    	}
    
    	return point;
    }
    Here are the errors:

    Code:
     error C2144: syntax error : '__w64 unsigned int' should be preceded by ';'
    error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed. Note: C++ does not support default-int
    The header file it opens is "sourceannations.h" when I click the error message to see which line it is refering too. How can I fix this error? I thought at first the IDE had crashed so I dumped the poject and re-did it, but no same errors again. Then I re-compiled an older program and it worked ok.

    im lost here. I appriciate any advice.

    Compiles fine here, except it contains an infinite loop.

    How is "sourceannations.h" in any way related to this file? Remove it from the project if it is there?
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
    Quoted more than 1000 times (I hope).

    You can get rid of the infinite loop if you make cin the logic test for the while:
    Code:
    int main ( ) 
    {
        int value = 0;
    
        std::cout << "Enter value to pass range of 1 to 100 ( enter -1 "
            << "to quit ): ";
    
        while ( std::cin >> value ) 
        {
            if ( value == -1)
            {
                exit(1);
            }
            else if (( value < 1 ) || ( value >= 101 )) 
            {
                std::cout << "\nIgnoring value - out of range!\n\n";
            }
    
            std::cout << "Value returned was: " << qualityPoints( value )
                << std::endl;
        }
    
        return 0;
    }
    I also didn't have a problem compiling.

    Hey guys thanks for the replys.

    I managed to solve it by deleting it from the directory dumping it from the project list after that. I re-wrote the program slower with working code and compiled it a few times, each time I had no problems.

    anon I think you are right, I must of somhow hit a shortcut key on keyboard when typing which included it But its all ok now
