    Unhappy help me : compiler is giving strange errors

    Hello
    i am using borlan c++ 5.02 on my laptop when i try to compile my following code

    // Acutall code
    Code:
    #include <C_CkMailMan.h>
    #include <C_CkEmail.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void main()
        {
        HCkMailMan mailman;
        BOOL success;
        HCkEmail email;
        const char * contentType;
    
        //  The mailman object is used for sending and receiving email.
        mailman = CkMailMan_Create();
    
        //  Any string argument automatically begins the 30-day trial.
    
        success = CkMailMan_UnlockComponent(mailman,"30-day trial");
        if (success != TRUE) {
            printf("Component unlock failed\n");
            return;
        }
    
        //  Set the SMTP server.
        CkMailMan_putSmtpHost(mailman,"smtp.chilkatsoft.com");
    
        //  You may need a login/password.  In many cases,
        //  authentication is not required when sending local email
        //  (i.e. to email addresses having the same domain as the
        //  SMTP server), but is required when sending to non-local
        //  recipients.
        CkMailMan_putSmtpUsername(mailman,"myLogin");
        CkMailMan_putSmtpPassword(mailman,"myPassword");
    
        //  Create a new email object
        email = CkEmail_Create();
    
        CkEmail_putSubject(email,"This is a test");
        CkEmail_putBody(email,"This is a test");
        CkEmail_putFrom(email,"Chilkat Support <support@chilkatsoft.com>");
        CkEmail_AddTo(email,"Somebody1","somebody1@somewhere.com");
        CkEmail_AddTo(email,"Somebody2","somebody2@somewhere.com");
    
        //  Add any number of attachments:
    
        //  The AddFileAttachment method can be called any number of times
        //  to add 1 or more attachments to an email.  It returns the
        //  content type of the attachment added.  This is for informational
        //  purposes only.  For example, if a .jpg file is attached,
        //  the return string will be "image/jpeg".
        //  If AddFileAttachment fails (perhaps by a file-not-found error),
        //  a NULL reference is returned:
        contentType = CkEmail_addFileAttachment(email,"c:/temp/something.doc");
        if (contentType == 0 ) {
            printf("%s\n",CkEmail_lastErrorText(email));
            return;
        }
    
        success = CkMailMan_SendEmail(mailman,email);
        if (success != TRUE) {
            printf("%s\n",CkMailMan_lastErrorText(mailman));
        }
        else {
            printf("Mail Sent!\n");
        }
    
    
        CkMailMan_Dispose(mailman);
        CkEmail_Dispose(email);
    
        }

    it gives me followig error. i got this expample code from [url=http://www.example-code.com]

    Don't you want to ask this in the C++ forum?

    No. i am saying that i used borland c++ compiler to compile this c example program. the reason i dont want to ask this in c++ because the code is in c.

    What?? This is the weirdest this i've ever come across. "this is c++ because the code is in C++". Does that really make any sense.

    Anyway have you got the library files for these two header files?
    #include <C_CkMailMan.h>
    #include <C_CkEmail.h>

    It seems like the there mainly function which cannot be referenced by the compiler.

    the code is taken from c section not c++. it uses stdio.h not iostream.h and printf instead of cout. anyway yes i have all files but some the functions are not working and compiler is giving error

    i think the error is a little bit like type casting error. what do you think?

    Compile your code with a C compiler since it is C (you can also continue checking that it is probably valid C++ by compiling with a C++ compiler, but that's secondary). This probably won't solve the problem you have at hand, but it is a good step.

    And you posted about your c++ program on the C forum.

    The reason you don't want to ask on the C++ forum is because the code example is in C++?

    .cpp means c plus plus

    Now go away and show up on the right forum.

    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.

    You need to link in the Chilkat library you're trying to use. How do you do that? I don't know...I don't use ancient compilers/IDEs.

    Only supports the v5.5 free command-line compiler.
    I suggest verifying the Library is compatible to your compiler.
    I suggest using a compiler that was made in this century.

    Edit: Added link to the C example code http://www.example-code.com/C/emailO...recipients.asp

    Note: You NEED to learn what a file extension is; using the file extension .cpp made everyone think you are writing c++ code. This is because most modern IDE only compile .c extension files as C programs.

    The compiler is not compatible with chilkat library, now it is giving the error of uuid.lib that it is missing. Actually yesterday i was very busy in analyzing different codes on different compilers thats why i made too much mistakes in posts. I am not a new programmer i already know the differene between c and c++, i used to work in c and c++ and mostly in C++ envoirnment. Anyone who knows a little bit about c or c++ can easily tell that its a c program there is no confusion the code is very easy to understand. i also tried code::block but that was not compatible either so i gave up about working on that sample because each header file and the sample code contains a code that makes it trail that it can work up to 30 days that means i have to reprogram each and everything. i hav not got enough time to reprogram every thing. I am also using visual studio 2010 but i dont like it much . i like the old compilers . Thank you so much for your response and the link but now i am not going to use chilkat library because of its limitation.
