    Help me with these errors... :-(

    okay, I have a complicated problem here, that's probably alot simpler than I think, but here goes... I'm getting these errors on Bloodshed Dev C++ V4.9.8.0. I put the errors then the line it highlites in the file...

    This is a pretty extensive list of errors, and i'd like to preface them by saying the only reason i'm posting them is because i've never seen any of them before, and can't figure out what to do from the string of files it sends me through... the only thing I can think of is chaniging the header files myself, seeing as it complains that they don't follow standards and are missing semi-colons, etc... if anybody can make any sense out of this mess, that would be greatly appreciated... and I'm attatching the source I used to get these errors... (which is still kinda messy because I started messing around with pointers when I got these errors, but the compiler stops before past including iostream)

    Exclamation Need more from you.

    I can't compile your source file with out your header. I'd get errors about everything that belongs.
    While you're breakin' down my back n'
    I been rackin' out my brain
    It don't matter how we make it
    'Cause it always ends the same
    You can push it for more mileage
    But your flaps r' wearin' thin
    And I could sleep on it 'til mornin'
    But this nightmare never ends
    Don't forget to call my lawyers
    With ridiculous demands
    An you can take the pity so far
    But it's more than I can stand
    'Cause this couchtrip's gettin' older
    Tell me how long has it been
    'Cause 5 years is forever

    This is how an class should look like :
    Code:
    class gameClass
    {
      // code 
    };
    In your print function you have this code:
    Code:
    for(int i=0;i<p1.hitcount;i++)
      cout<<card(p,i)<<' ';
    but I cant seem to find where p is declared

    There seems to be alot of other error aswell, like
    Code:
    if(p1.card[i]==1)
      return 'A';
    p1 is a cards struct variable put it doesnt contain a variable card[], maybe you want to use hand[] instead.

    I agree, you have way too many errors in your program. Most seem to be due to your not good at writing with C++. You can't seem to remember when a variable is declaired or not. Hell you don't even know your own class too well.

    ^ .......... you, stupid @$$hole

    >>This is how an class should look like...
    oops... forgot about that...

    >>p1 is a cards struct variable put it doesnt contain a variable card[], maybe you want to use hand[] instead.
    I've done that so many times... in an older program I had it the other way and now I'm confusing myself...

    >>but I cant seem to find where p is declared
    p and d are meant to be literal values... I forgot about the quotes

    Thanks for that... it cleared up the errors, but I still don't know where they came from... any help with that?

    Most errors that complain about a header file are generally caused by the programmer making a syntax mistake or two. When code is error free by syntax you would not get those type of errors. Of course you could have a corupted file (rare event) that could cause strange errors like those. An improper setting coud cause that too. A bad lib file as well.
