    Say what? - Weird error.

    This is the first time I've ever seen this error, I have no idea what it means.

    (Borland Bcc32 compiler ... Windows XP)
    Error E2062 C:\*File* 693: Invalid indirection in function PlatBreaker()

    I'm dumbstruck by this error -,-. I'll post the code, but I'd rather someone just tell me what the error is >.>.

    Here the function:
    Code:
    void PlatBreaker() {
     int it;
     int x, y;
    
     for(x=0; x <= Plats; x++)
      if(Plat[x].IsBroken()) {
    
       if(Plats[x].GetFlag() == 0) {
        Plat[x].SetPc(25);
        Plat[x].SetFlag(1);
       }
    
       if(Plat[x].GetFlag() == 1 && Plat[x].GetPc() > 0)
        Plat[x].RemovePc();
    
       if(Plat[x].GetFlag() == 1 && Plat[x].GetPc() == 0)
        Plat[x].SetFlag(2);
    
       if(Plat[x].GetFlag() == 2) {
        Plat[x].Break();
        Plat[x].Null();
        return;
       }
      }
    
     return;
    }
    And the platform code:
    Code:
    #include <windows>
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include <conio>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <vector>
    using namespace std;
    
    HANDLE hOt = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);

    void SetColor(char c) {
     if(c == 'o')

     if(c == 'r')

    What line is that on? What is 'Plat'? The error implies that it may not be an array.

    >> Line 26
    That's the line that the error points to? Do you mean the line that says return;?

    > if(Plats[x].GetFlag() == 0)
    Everything else is singlular except for this plural
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
