    I have a compile error that i do not know how to fix (Updated).

    Deleting intermediate files and output files for project 'cs131assign3 - Win32 Debug'.
    --------------------Configuration: cs131assign3 - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Compiling...
    driver program.cpp

    cs131assign3.exe - 3 error(s), 3 warning(s)



    My include statements are as follows:
    sortedtype.h ------- #include "itemtype.h"
    sortedtype.cpp-------#include "sortedtype.h"


    itemtype.h -----------#include "sortedtype.h"
    itemtype.cpp ---------#include "itemtype.h"

    driver program.cpp ----#include "sortedtype.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>

    you have recursive includes, meaning:

    ====foo1.h====
    #include "foo2.h"

    ====foo2.h====
    #include "foo1.h"

    ====foobar.c====
    #include "foo2.h"

    once foobar.c includes foo2.h, the preprocessor will jump back and forth between foo1.h and foo2.h until your mom comes home.
    hello, internet!

    If this is truely the case you should put inclusion guards on your headers.
    Code:
    #ifndef __MYHEADER_H__
    #define __MYHEADER_H__
    
    // FOO!!!!!
    
    #endif /* __MYHEADER_H__ */
    "...the results are undefined, and we all know what "undefined" means: it means it works during development, it works during testing, and it blows up in your most important customers' faces." --Scott Meyers
