    Exclamation strange result of after compiling a program

    Dear friends,

    I was compiling a program and it continues giving me
    this type of error.... what is going on ?

    ! dist.cpp: In function `int main(int, char **)':
    ! dist.cpp:45: call of overloaded `get(int &)' is ambiguous
    ! C:\Program Files\GNUCPP\bin\..\lib\gcc-lib\i386-mingw32\2.95.2\..\..\..\..
    * \include\g++-3\iostream.h:127: candidates are: class istream & istream::get(
    * har &) <near match>
    .
    .
    .
    .

    C:\Program Files\GNUCPP\bin\..\lib\gcc-lib\i386-mingw32\2.95.2\..\..\..\..
    * \include\g++-3\iostream.h:144: class istream & istream::get(
    * treambuf &, char = '\n') <near match>
    ! make: *** [dist.o] Error 1

    that function would be used like this:

    int main( )
    {
    char ch;
    cout << "enter a character" << endl;
    cin.get( ch );
    return 0;
    }

    Is this what it looks like in your program?
