    problem of class definition and main function

    Here, the class definition and the main function must be in the same file and the type of the main function must be void. It has 1 error & 1 warning:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    
    class X
    {
    
    }
    
    void main() //error: the class followed by void is illegal. 
    {
    }//warning: 'main' : function should return a value; 'void' return type assumed
    How to fix it? I really need your help.

    You need a semicolon after the closing brace in the class definition. Also, main() must return int to be standards-compliant.

    Well. It is int main(). Second when you are making a class you have to put a ';' at the end of the last '}' so it would be.
    Code:
    class X{
    };
    Woop?
