    What the heck is wrong with this code?

    I was working on this stupid code at my stupid school on stupid visual studio 6.0 and it worked FINE! I emailed the source to myself and it is giving me an error on this line of code:
    Code:
    Spaceship1->ForwardAngle >= Spaceship1->MaxAngle?Spaceship1->ForwardAngle += 0:Spaceship1- >ForwardAngle += -Spaceship1->TiltSpeed;
    The error says:
    lesson1\lesson01\Lesson1.cpp(748) : error C2059: syntax error : '>'



    GOD HATES ME

    why not email it as an attachment instead?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I think the code is somewhat hard to read.

    Spaceship1->ForwardAngle += 0 //??? Seems unnecessary

    I like something like:
    Code:
    if (SpaceShip->ForwardAngle < Spaceship1->MaxAngle)
     Spaceship1->ForwardAngle -= Spaceship1->TiltSpeed;
