    i did follow the setup instructions exactly and if you could tell me what i need to do to fix this error

    5 C:\Dev-Cpp\Untitled1.cpp
    parse error before `)' token

    i think it will work the code is

    #include <windows.h>

    main ()
    {
    ()cout << "Hello World!" << endl;

    ()cout << "Press ENTER to continue..." << endl;
    ()getchar ();
    return 0;
    }

    i have never ever seen code with the () like that, i dont think its even c++ syntax honestly. Try putting those two files into your header directory and try my code again. Both the one with namespace and the one without.

    the reason it is not working is because of the () before the cout and the getchar.

    just noticed, RoD beat me.

    Code:
    extern "C" system(const char *);
    
    int main()
    {
    	system("echo Hello World!");
    	system("pause");
    
    	return 0;
    }
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    put files? do you mean upload files to the board?

    if you do, there is an "Attach File" option under Options (no pun intended) and you can do it from there.

    using namespace std;

    void Start ();
    void GetResults ();

    int i, j, life, maxrand;
    char c;


    void
    Start ()
    {
    i = 0;
    j = 0;
    life = 0;
    maxrand = 6;

    cout << "Select difficulty mode:\n"; // the user has to select a difficutly level
    cout << "1 : Easy (0-15)\n";
    cout << "2 : Medium (0-30)\n";
    cout << "3 : Difficult (0-50)\n";
    cout << "or type another key to quit\n";
    c = 30;

    cin >> c; // read the user's choice
    cout << "\n";

    switch (c)
    {
    case '1' : maxrand = 15; // the random number will be between 0 and maxrand
    break;
    case '2' : maxrand = 30;
    break;
    case '3' : maxrand = 50;
    break;
    default : exit(0);
    break;
    }

    life = 10; // number of lifes of the player
    srand( (unsigned)time( NULL ) ); // init Rand() function
    j = rand() % maxrand; // j get a random value between 0 and maxrand

    GetResults();

    }


    void
    GetResults ()
    {
    if (life <= 0)
    // if player has no more life then he lose
    {
    cout << "HAHAHAHAHA YOU IDIOT YOU CANT EVE GUESSE A NUMBER RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!\n\n";
    Start();
    }

    cout << "Type a number: \n";
    cin >> i; // read user's number

    if ((i>maxrand) || (i<0)) // if the user number isn't correct, restart
    {
    cout << "Error : Number not between 0 and \n" << maxrand;
    GetResults();
    }

    if (i == j)
    {
    cout << "you have just wasted one minute of your life but you win.\n\n"; // the user found the secret number
    Start();
    }

    else if (i>j)
    {
    cout << "Too BIG\n";
    life = life - 1; // -1 to the user's "life"
    cout << "Number of remaining life: " << life << "\n\n";
    GetResults();
    }

    else if (i<j)
    {
    cout << "Too SMALL\n";
    life = life - 1;
    cout << "Number of remaining life:\n" << life << "\n\n";
    GetResults();
    }
    }


    int
    main ()
    {
    cout << "** Jackpot game **\n";
    cout << "The goal of this game is to guess a number. You will be ask to type\n";
    cout << "a number (you have 5 guess)\n";
    cout << "Jackpot will then tell you if this number is too big of too small compared to the secret number to find\n\n";
    Start();
    return 0;
