Thread: Weird function problems

    Question Weird function problems

    My compiler complains of '}' syntax errors all over the place in this function. I have to comment out the IF statements and their closing brackets (not the enclosed statements) to get it to compile. Take a look, and tell me if you see any problems.

    PHP Code:
    bool checkArgs(int countchar *value[]) {
    char *val;
      for (
    int i 1i<counti++) {
    val value[i];
        if (
    val[1] == '-')   // True if a switch is used
    if (val[2] == 'A'// 'A'dmin privileges
    cout << val << ": Admin Privileges Granted.\n";

    Count the number of opening and closing braces. they should match, but in your case they don't.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    bool checkArgs(int count, char *value[]) {
      char *val;
      for (int i = 1; i<count; i++) {
        val = value[i];
        if (val[1] == '-')   // True if a switch is used
          if (val[2] == 'A') // 'A'dmin privileges
            cout << val << ": Admin Privileges Granted.\n";
      return true;
