    not so great error messages

    although i know this thread will most likely get buried amongst the rest, but i decided to create it in hopes to compile a list of error messages that are either uniformative, vague, or just plain bad, in hopes that the next time someone has an error they don't undestand they can look here to help them figure out what it means.


    this thread was inspired by this line of code that i spent 30 minutes on..

    virtual ~Cbox::CBox(void);

    it may be obvious if you have a fresh pair of eyes, but consider writing a significant amount of code before hand and using virtual for the first time.

    the error, in VC6 is
    line nn: destructor mismatch for CBox


    ohhhhhhhhh..ok, thanks....


    if you haven't noticed, i didn't capitalize the 'b' in Cbox::CBox
    i seem to have GCC 3.3.4
    But how do i start it?
    I dont have a menu for it or anything.
