    expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ';' token error help

    Hey,

    I'm trying to get tic tac toe working but am getting an error. Can anyone help?

    I'm using C++ and dev-C++ as the compiler. I've opened an allegro.h file and have a .ccp file with tic tac toe code for the source.

    I'm getting an error shown here: 3 C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\tictactoe.cpp expected constructor, destructor, or type conversion before ';' token

    I've loaded the x and 0 sprite bitmap images.

    Source code .cpp file here:

    Code:
    #include <allegro.h>
    
     *xSprite;
     *oSprite;
    
    int board[9] = { 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}; //This will be used to keep
                                                 //track of the Xs and Os
    int curSquare = 0; //This will keep track of the current square
                        //the selector is on
                                                 
    int turn = 1; //This will keep track of whose turn it is
                  //1 Will be for X and 2 for O
                  
    int x = 0; //X and Y position of selector
    int y = 0;
    
    int tempX = 0; //holds temporary values used to clear selector
    int tempY = 0;
    
    void setupBoard(){ //This function will draw in the grid
    
        acquire_screen();

    }   
    END_OF_MAIN();
    Any ideas?

    *xSprite;
    *oSprite;

    What are these supposed to be?
    Specifically, what TYPE?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
