    parse error?

    I need to know why I am getting a parse error in the following code. I can't find anything wrong with it. I am using the Dev-C++ compiler. I get it right at the class newword[240]




    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <fstream.h>

    char uresponse[240];
    int menuselect;





    int main(int argc, char *argv[])

    class newword[240]
    {
    char type[240];
    char subtype[240];
    char adjectives[240];
    int likescale;
    char whylike[240];
    char whydislike[240];
    };

    };


    Look at the line right before it. If that's a prototype of main(), then you need a ';' at the end. If that's where the function should be, put at least the braces in.

    Oh, and you can't put the [240] in the class declaration; you can make an array of objects later, but not when you define the class itself.

    Thank you very much. I can't describe how appreciative I am of all the senior members, or rather knowledgeable members, that help people struggling with certain aspects of programming. I know that is a thankless job most of the time, but I just want to tell you, Thanks!

    Hey, always glad to help =]

    We all started out not knowing these languages, the least someone like myself can do is pass along some of the info I've learned, and am still learning.
