    Error message that doesnt tell me where to fix!!!

    I keep compiling my stuff and I get this in the end...
    Code:
    ld: 0711-224 WARNING: Duplicate symbol: .strcmpFPCcPCc
    ld: 0711-345 Use the -bloadmap or -bnoquiet option to obtain more information.
    Anyone know what this could be or how I can debug this?

    If I were you, I would use the -bloadmap or -bnoquiet option to obtain more information about the problem. You need to pass (one of) those options to the linker (since that's the "ld" that's giving you grief); how you do that depends on what compiler you're using.

    OTOH, since strcmp is a library function, every file you're using should have that as an external function. Do you have #include <cstring> in all of your files?

    A duplicate symbol is usually a sign that a function is defined in a header file. Have you got your own version of strcmp().
