    I tried moving "menu2()" out of "cityBertopia". But it just causes more errors. If it matters, I moved "int choice = menu2();" out. I don't think I can move just "menu2()".

    That didn't work. It displayed the same 4 errors.

    Bert,

    This thread has deteriorated to the point of "Help me. Your last suggestion didn't work, give me another idea."

    This is starting to move beyond casual assistance. You need to solve this problem. If you desire to continue programming, you have to learn to understand compiler errors and look through your own code to find the problem. Myself and others are more than willing to assist you, but there has to be effort on your part. There are a lot of talented people here; some of these people program professionally, others are enthusiasts - all generously offer their help and knowledge. Their time is precious. Do not waste their time by asking for help with a problem you have not been willing to spend your own time on.

    That said...

    Parse errors are typically grammatical errors of some sort; missing punctuation marks such as { } ; ( ) Look through your code and make sure that all of your syntax is correct. Try looking at the code preceeding 'cityBertopia.cpp'

    Regardless of its legality, defining functions within other functions is definitely poor practice. Menu2() needs to be its own function, outside of cityBertopia().

    If you encounter further problems or have other questions, do not hesitate to ask, but only after you've attempted a solution yourself.

    I'm curious as to what you find the problem is and I'd be interested in seeing your finished program. Please let me know.

    fletch
