    >>> any ideas?

    Yeah, might be a good idea to include what Operating System you are using, what compiler, and what files you are trying to compile.

    good point, my bad.

    i'm programming a fruit machine for a uni assignment, using windows xp and microsoft visual studio 6 enterprise edition.

    i have reel, game and random number class's each with a header and cpp file. if i type in "#include "Reel.H"" which is the name of the file, then when i compile it says it can't find the file.

    If you are using the quotation style include, (#include "abc.h"), VC++ looks for the files in the same directory as the source files, is that where they are?

    Also, have you manually moved things around? THe IDE doesn't like that.

    sorted it out, copied the code into a new project.

    but now i'm getting an error when generating a random number, and the function is linked in with the cpu clock cycle. its a progarm generated bit of code which gives syntax errors.

    Good solution when it all looks like it should work but doesn't, especially if you've been fiddling...

    Now your new problem...

    Look, I don't want to seem to be some hellish ogre that preys on newbies, but, it is impossible to help you with that question without knowing what you have done, and what specifically the error is.

    Is the error a compiler error? Is the linker kicking up a fuss? Does it compile and link but is not doing what you thought it should?

    Post a bit of code which shows how you are trying to do something, tell us what you want to do and what it is actually doing.

    Open a new thread with a good question, you'll find a good question will receive numerous answers, (some good, some useless - c´est la vie).
