Why the the hell is this happening????
Lets say I am writing a rectangle class called RECT (just an example). I would place the class in its own header file; while I would place its member function code it to its own cpp file.
K, in the rectangles cpp file that contains all of its member function code, I declare a "GLOBAL" RECT called 'rect'........
Ok, back in main() WITH THE RECT HEADER FILE INCLUDED, I try to use this "GLOBAL" RECT called 'rect' that I defined earlier -> I get an error saying " 'rect' undeclared identifer ".... k..... thats a $$$$ing lie.
Btw - I didn't place the GLOBAL RECT in any of the member functions, I just placed it above them all.
COMPILER: VC++ OS: WindowsXP
Another thing, sometimes VC++ will get stuck on an error... for instance, lets say I forgot to put a semi-colon at the end of a statement(Just an example), no seriously.... I correct the error, and it will give me the same $$$$ing error... So, to test it... I make an entirely different error on purpose, and it gives me the same error... and doesn't even bother looking at the error I did on purpose... Well, to test it further, I completely destroy all my code, delete imporant variables used through out the code, 'un-include' header files etc... and it will give me the same error.
Then, I make a copy of all my code in my project, and delete the current project. Next, I create a new project in MSVC++ and add the code from the other project, and it compiles fine... Does anyone else have this problem??? (VC++ 6.0)
Ok, ok, i know.. I didn't do a good job explaing any of this, I am being rushed right now.... I probably made many typo's and didn't make any sense........
Any help would be appreciated.
