    very weird .h problem

    hello, peeps! i'm having trouble figuring out what the problem is with my program. i got this .h (Serial.h) file from a site that works very well with all the programs that i've used that .h file.

    but when insert "serial.h" to another file (RT100.cpp), i got all these errors that i've never seen before when i used "serial.h" with my other program.

    here is serial.h

    Code:
    #ifndef __SERIAL_H__
    #define __SERIAL_H__
    
    #define FC_DTRDSR       0x01
    #define FC_RTSCTS       0x02
    #define FC_XONXOFF      0x04
    #define ASCII_BEL       0x07
    #define ASCII_BS        0x08
    #define ASCII_LF        0x0A
    #define ASCII_CR        0x0D
    #define ASCII_XON       0x11
    #define ASCII_XOFF      0x13
    
    class CSerial
    {
    
    public:
    	CSerial();
    	~CSerial();
    
    	BOOL Open( int nPort = 2, int nBaud = 9600 );
    	BOOL Close( void );
    
    	int ReadData( void *, int );
    	int SendData( const char *, int );
    	int ReadDataWaiting( void );
    
    	BOOL IsOpened( void ){ return( m_bOpened ); }
    
    protected:
    	BOOL WriteCommByte( unsigned char );
    
    	HANDLE m_hIDComDev;
    	OVERLAPPED m_OverlappedRead, m_OverlappedWrite;
    	BOOL m_bOpened;
    
    };
    
    #endif
    here is the file that i'm trying to insert serial.h into

    Code:
    #include "rt100.h"
