    your macros are using them as though they're stings, anything that is not preprocessed that's in the macro well completely mess it up
    You have no idea what you're talking about.

    #include <stdio.h>
    #define NUMBERPARTY 5
    #define NUMBERENEMY 9
    #define GROUPCHAR(x) (x)?partychar:enemychar 
    #define GROUPCHAR2(x) (x)?enemychar:partychar 
    #define CODE(x) (x)?code:code2 
    int main ( void )
        int partychar=0, enemychar=0, code=0, code2=0;
        int b=1,c=0;
        for( c = 0; c < NUMGROUP(b); c++ )
            if( c > 3 ) b=0;
            code++; //random crap
            code2--; //random crap
            partychar *= code; //random crap
            enemychar += code2; //random crap
            cout << " c=" << c << " gc=" GROUPCHAR(b)
                    << " gc2=" << GROUPCHAR2(b),
                    << " codex=" CODE(b) << endl;
        return 0;
    Again, what the hell are you talking about? I never said anything about strings. These macros don't care WHAT you pass them. That's the whole point of using a macro. Or atleast one point...

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
