    can't compile

    I am using Metrowerks Code Warrior, I had somebody helping me with this. It compiles on his compiler (not the same as mine) but I am getting like 99 errors! Can't open dos.h, and can't open graphics.h and so on.
    Can somebody look at this and see if anything jumps out at you?
    Thanks!!

    Code:
     
    //-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    //=This program is for the game "Tic Tac Toe".                               -
    //-here the two players plays the game using the navigation key              =
    //=i.e. the arrow keys "up, down, right, left" to navigate through the panel -
    //-and selects a particular box by pressing the enter key.                   =
    //=                                                                          -
    //-if a particular user wins the game the program waits for key to be pressed=
    //=and after the key is press it returns back to the main function           -
    //-if at all if a user wants to exit then he need to press the Esc key       =

    Its cause your using a newer compiler. Find an old compiler that supports dos
    Woop?

    I would rather change the program to work with my compiler, is this possible?
    Of course I would need help!

    What compiler was it that it worked on?

    At any rate, dos.h, conio.h, and graphics.h are not standard headers, and are therefore, probably not included with your compiler.

    As a side note, 'void main' is not technically valid. It should be 'int main'. That should not be causing compile-time errors.

    Any good compiler will cause compile time errors if you are using void main().

    True... But I have yet to see one that does.

    What can I replace these with?

    Actually I should have said error or warning. I have it setup so that warnings are treated as errors

    Well, conio.h is probably just used for the getch( ) at the end of main( ). You can just put a cin.get( ) there to have (roughly) the same effect (puasing at the end).

    >I am using Metrowerks Code Warrior,
    Okay, you shouldn't expect a Borland library to work with CodeWarrior... If you want to compile this code, get Turbo C++ and an operating system old enough to run it.

    >Can somebody look at this and see if anything jumps out at you?
    Two things jump out at me (aside from the yucky formatting), and I get the impression that this isn't C++.

    >void main(void)
    No cookie for you! The void is dangerous; it forces itself on unsuspecting programs and causes a plague of erratic behavior. The void must be stopped! It is 3VIL!

    >main();
    This is a bad thing even in a language that allows it, such as C. It's only use is for the IOCCC.
    My best code is written with the delete key.
