    Need Help: end of file found before....

    I am getting an error in my debugging that i dont understand. I dont even know how to end code yet...I'm 2 days into learning C++ so im not even sure the last section is correct yet.


    This is the debug output.
    Code:
     1>c:\users\****\documents\visual studio 2008\projects\char\char\char.cpp(143) : fatal error C1075: end of file found before the left brace '{' at 'c:\users\****\documents\visual studio 2008\projects\char\char\char.cpp(11)' was matched
    I think the error refers to the section of code that looks like
    Code:
    	if (cPoints > 0)
    Towards the bottom.

    Here is my code.
    Code:
     // Char.cpp : Defines the entry point for the cConsole application.
    //
    
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <ctime>
    #include <string>

    Looks like you're missing one final } in main.

    Work on making your indentation more consistent. It will help finding these types of errors where braces don't match up.

    yeah, in my program they match up right, when i copied and pasted a lot of it sorta formatted a bit off. So it just looks like i missed a close...hmmm ive been over it a bunch of times and i dont see it.

    I'll look again.

    EDIT: Yep, there it is....thanx for catching that. Im sorry, i should have a been a little more diligent about checking my code.

    I did this too when i was a newbie at C++ programming. What is that? Copying and pasting other people's code! Although it was easy for me, i ended with several lines of code that are difficult to debug.
    Find ways to minimize your basic code, which is inside main(). Only then you'll localise errors and help youself and the others who try to help you!
    I now you said you are new to this, but ignorance is no excuse!! Try to find a C++ book to help you out with the basics, that's what i did!

    That is MY opinion of course.......

    I would also like to add the simple suggestion of getting an automatic indenting app. Many are available for *NIX, should be some freeware things out there for Windows...the thing is if you miss a paren or brace gets unbalanced, this kind of tool seems to help high light those errors easily...

    Make system: CMake
    Debuggers: Valgrind/GDB
