    error invalid conversion from ‘const void*’ to ‘void*’

    Ok, I know this question has been asked numerous times but I still don't understand it...-invalid-conversion-jpg

    Please help, I'm pretty much a noob in C++ programming.

    It might be better if you posted the code and relevant error messages within [code][/code] bbcode tags.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    My guess is that your first argument to ibwrt is not what it wants. You didn't show us the definition of that though.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    First, are you coding in C or C++?

    Second, if you're a noob you did not write that code. Where did you get it?
