    Question "Non-function" error

    The following code:
    Code:
    inline void * __cdecl operator new(unsigned int size,
        const char *file, int line)
    {
    	void *ptr = (void *)malloc(size);
    	AddTrack((DWORD)ptr, size, file, line);
    	return(ptr);
    };

    gives me
    Code:
    error: declaration of `operator new' as non-function
    Why?

    Okay, I managed to eliminate that problem by commenting out the following in a header file (yes, if you haven't noticed, I'm using the example code from this):
    Code:
    #define DEBUG_NEW new(__FILE__, __LINE__)
    #define new DEBUG_NEW
    BUT I want to be able to #include this file and have it override the new operator with that macro to make it spew out some diagnostics. How do I do that?

    Problem solved by sticking the function definitions above the macro.
