undeclared identifier problem
I'm just beginning to learn about moving functions out of the main program.
I've got a BITMAP_FILE_PTR undeclared identifier error in MSVC 6.0 .
I created a header file called bitmapfunct involving BITMAP_FILE_PTR and now I get an error.
I declared the function in my main but how do I make it so it is also declared or defined in the header file ?
Here is the code from my main involving the variable
do I use extern ?
typedef struct BITMAP_FILE_TAG
BITMAPFILEHEADER bitmapfileheader; // this contains the bitmapfile header
BITMAPINFOHEADER bitmapinfoheader; // this is all the info including the palette
PALETTEENTRY palette; // we will store the palette here
UCHAR *buffer; // this is a pointer to the data
} BITMAP_FILE, *BITMAP_FILE_PTR;
