    Question Dev-C++ doesn't accept RCDATA!

    When I attempt to compile:

    ABOUT RCDATA "about.txt"

    Dev-C++ returns the error: Invalid syntex error.
    I have followed many different examples an none of them work. Why won't Dev-C++ compile RCDATA data?

    Assuming that ABOUT is properly defined, you would need to enclose the data in braces, i.e.,:
    Code:
    ABOUT RCDATA 
    {
    "about.txt"
    }
