Thread: Compile error.

  1. #1

    Compile error.

    hello all,

    I am trying to compile a simple C program on SunOS 5.5.1 and I get the following errors,

    /usr/include/stdio.h:107: Invald token in expression
    /usr/include/stdio.h:109: Invald token in expression
    /usr/include/ctype.h:81: Invald token in expression

    Any ideas as to what am I missing? I looked at the lines mentioned above, but could not figure out whats going wrong.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Could it be that in the header-files as mentioned by the compiler are some invalid characters? For example, if you have written code on a Windows machine and transport it to a Unix machine for compiling, then it will complain because of the DOS end of line characters, which are invalid characters for Unix compilers.

    I would suggest you use a text-editor on SunOS and take a look at the mentioned lines to see if there is an invalid character.

    Yes, you're missing the code. If you want help from us, it's probably best you actually post some.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I could be mistaken, it's happened before, but you may have an invalid token in the expression.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    the command
    dos2unix <filename>
    fixes the above mentioned end of line character problem.
