    Talking mingw error message

    This isn't excactly c++, so I posted it in general?
    Can any tell me what this error code from mingw c++ means?
    default argument given for parameter 7 of `
    Mapper<Type>::Mapper(long unsigned int, long unsigned int, long double, long
    double, long double, long double, bool (*)(const Type*, RGBQUAD*, long
    unsigned int) = defConversion<Type>)
    '
    after previous specification in `
    Mapper<Type>::Mapper(long unsigned int, long unsigned int, long double, long
    double, long double, long double, bool (*)(const Type*, RGBQUAD*, long
    unsigned int) = defConversion<Type>)'


    Ps. 'Type' is a template parameter
    the 7th parameter is a function pointer and I have typed the same spellings both in the prototype and defeniton.
    The default parameter is a func:template taking 'Type' of the template instance.
    When I remove the def param in declaration The error goes away.
    The help I need is why I can't give def param in both places
    If my question is unclear, i'll post the whole code.

    You have defined a default value for that parameter in both protoype and defenition. You should do it in one of them only.
