    Small Error it seems. *SOLVED*

    SOLVED


    I've been working on this project for a few hours now, and I've got the algorithm part of it down, however, I've been having 8 errors, all caused by "missing semicolons" supposedly. I cannot for the life of me find the problem/error however. Here is my following code (its not huge, less then 150 lines about). Opinions are welcome and I am still an amateur.

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <iomanip>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    // The purpose of this program is to calculate United State's personal income tax based
    // on filing status and taxable income.
    
    // Filing Statuses
    // 0 = Single Filer
    // 1 = Married Filing Jointly
    // 2 = Married Filing Seperately
    // 3 = Head of Household
    
    ifstream inFile; // Input stream
    
    int SSN, filingStatus; //used SSN as variable for simplicity and popularness.
    float taxableIncome; // Taxable Income (total income before tax)
    string firstName, middleName, lastName; // strings for each part of the name
    string fullName = firstName + middleName + lastName; // Just to make it simple.
    
    float computeSingle(float);
    float computeMjoint(float);
    float computeMseperate(float);
    float computeHeadhouse(float);
    // All float integers in the above formulas are for taxableIncome. These formula's compute the tax.
    
    int main()
    {
    
    	inFile.open("taxData.txt"); //opens stream for input.
    
    	if (!inFile) // Small if statement to check for file stream status.
    	{
    		cout << "File could not be opened or found" << endl;
    		return 0;
    	}
    
    	inFile >> firstName >> middleName >> lastName >> SSN >> filingStatus >> taxableIncome; //Getting input in order.
    	
    	cout << fixed << showpoint << setprecision(2);
    
    	if(filingStatus = 0){
    		cout << "Full Name = " << fullName << endl
    			 << "SSN = " << SSN << endl
    			 << "Filing Status = " << filingStatus << endl
    			 << "Computed Tax = " << computeSingle(taxableIncome) << endl;
    	}
    	else if(filingStatus = 1){
    		cout << "Full Name = " << fullName << endl
    			 << "SSN = " << SSN << endl
    			 << "Filing Status = " << filingStatus << endl
    			 << "Computed Tax = " << computeMjoint(taxableIncome) << endl;
    	}
    	else if(filingStatus = 2){
    		cout << "Full Name = " << fullName << endl
    			 << "SSN = " << SSN << endl
    			 << "Filing Status = " << filingStatus << endl
    			 << "Computed Tax = " << computeMseperate(taxableIncome) << endl;
    	}
    	else if(filingStatus = 3){
    		cout << "Full Name = " << fullName << endl
    			 << "SSN = " << SSN << endl
    			 << "Filing Status = " << filingStatus << endl
    			 << "Computed Tax = " << computeHeadhouse(taxableIncome) << endl;
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    float computeSingle(float i)

    	return 0;
    }
    and here are the errors. They are based in the sub formulas (computeSingle, etc). Each one of these errors appears twice in the output log. I am using Visual Studio 2008.

    (90) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'constant'
    (112) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'constant'
    (135) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'constant'
    (158) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before 'constant'
    Any help is greatly appreciated. I've been looking for an hour or so now and I figured it would be best to get a different perspective.

    This doesn't do what you think:
    Code:
    filingStatus = 0
    You need to use "==" to do a comparison.

    Your semicolon errors are caused by the 8 that was most likely supposed to by a '*':
    Code:
    return (i - 307051) * .386 + 307050 8 .35 + 171950 * .30 + 112850 * .27 + 46700 * .15 + 12000 * .10;

    Thank you greatly for your input. My left shift key sticks all the time (I had to buy a cheap 20$ keyboard after my g15 blew up)
