    Externs, includes, protection OH MY

    I have about eight files in my dev project. All of the headers are inclusionally protected, and i have included all of the necessary files. the problem still remains that i can't access variables and functions named in other headers. NOthing i can do has made my functions and headers see eachother. for instance, i can;t get void initScenario to be able to call initRooms (declared in rooms.h). In initRooms, i can't get it to see world[16][16] whoch is declared in scenario.h (where initScenario is)

    Help!

    did you do

    #include "rooms.h"

    for the file you need to have access to rooms.h ?

    ... and is the error at compile or link time?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Hammer might be able to have it show up like that, because he is using it in his sig and not in an actual post.

    There are special character codes (like /&%#69, not sure of the exact syntax though... ) that allows you to print characters like [ and ], without the tags to take effect.

    hammer does it like this

    [code] lookey [/code]

    now to do it, remove the spaces:

    [c [ i ][ / i ] o d e ]

    tags.
