Vectors, Functions, "Type Specifier Omitted for Parameter" errors

This is a discussion on Vectors, Functions, "Type Specifier Omitted for Parameter" errors within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; In my main program driver class, I have the following lines: Code: #include "Room.cpp" #include "Entity.cpp" #include <vector> using namespace ...

    Vectors, Functions, "Type Specifier Omitted for Parameter" errors

    In my main program driver class, I have the following lines:

    Code:
    #include "Room.cpp"
    #include "Entity.cpp"
    #include <vector>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int cleanUp();
    int gameLoop(Entity player, vector roomList);
    int loadMap(vector roomList);
    on my gameLoop prototype, I get a Type Specifier Omitted for Parameter error. I also get a parse error before ')'. On the next line...I get: 'vector' was not defined in this scope. The rest of the errors are the same, plus an error that I cannot pass objects of type `vector<Room,allocator<Room> >' through `...', which I presume means I can't pass vectors from function to function. What's wrong with this?

    You must specify a type for the vector
    Code:
    int gameLoop(Entity player, vector<Room> roomList);
    or make the function a templated (is that a word?) function
    Code:
    template<typename T>
    int gameLoop(Entity player, vector<T> roomList);
