    Unhappy need parse help

    i made a code and tried to compile it but it shows up with an error saying "parse before '='. this is the statement that it says is wrong: fahrenhiet = factor * celsius/100 + 32;
    wut do they meen by parse before '='? wut should i do?

    Opps! sorry for the confusion. here's the whole code:

    //
    //Program to convert temerature
    //units in joe
    //Fahrenhiet = Celsius * (212 - 32)/100 +32
    //

    #include <iostream.h>

    int main(int nNumberofArgs, char* pszArgs[])
    {
    //enter the temperature in celsius
    int celsius;
    cout << "Enter the temperature in Celcius:";
    cin >> celsius;

    //calculate conversion factor for celsius
    //to Fahrenhiet
    int factor;
    factor = 212-32;

    //use conversion factor to conver celsius
    //into Fahrenhiet values
    int fahrenhiet;
    fahrenhiet = factor * celsius/100 + 32;

    //output the results
    cout << "Fahrenhiet value is:";
    cout << fahrenhiet;

    return 0;
    }

    the only thing i can help you with, considering you didn't really give the code that we needed to see.. is that the formula for converting between the 2 is:

    f = 9 * c / 5 + 32;

    and

    c = (f - 32) * 5 / 9;

    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur.
    Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

    A parse error is usually due to an error made in the previous code, things like missing semi-colons, or missing braces, etc. Go to the error line and move up through the code looking for that kind of stuff.
