Hey there,

I am new to DaniWeb. This site is great! I would really appreciate it if someone would answer a question regarding three errors that this code generates. I have tried for a long time to make this text-based C++ RPG work. I got it down to just three errors but I can't seem to fix them. I am pretty sure they have to do with the brackets, but I am not totally sure. I am still getting better at C++, so please go easy on me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here are the errors:

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\EPIC.c||In function `int main()':|
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\EPIC.c|798|error: expected `while' before numeric constant|
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\EPIC.c|798|error: expected `(' before numeric constant|
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\EPIC.c|798|error: expected `)' before ';' token|
||=== Build finished: 3 errors, 0 warnings ===|

They all seem to be on the same line (798). It really is making no sense lol. There has to be an obvious answer to this problem that I am just not seeing. Thanks again!

PS. The reason I posted the entire code is because I am not sure if a different line in the code is causing this.

Errors like this are hard to see when your bracket alignment is all over the place.

The closing bracket before return 0; is the end of a "do {}" block, so its expecting a while statement.

On a more general note, you don't need to create all those identical structs with different names e.g, instead of WeaponOne, WeaponTwo, WeaponThree, write a single struct Weapon . writing a struct creates a data type, just like int, string, double, etc.

You could also do with breaking up your code a little using functions. a 700-line long main() function isn't much fun to look at; functions are there to let yoú write code once and repeat it however many times you like.

Hi Bench!

Thanks for your help. I would agree with you that my brackets are all over the place lol. I should comment more and have better spacing :P

I decided to use dozens of structs because I wanted to have different structs branching off of eachother. That way, I think its better to read and easier to understand. I mean, it works right? :P

And yes, I know what you mean about the 700-line long main() function. I will organize that soon haha.

Now, about the errors; you are saying I should add a while? I don't fully understand what you mean. Would you mind telling me exactly which line/s I should edit/add in things to? And if I should add a while loop, what 'do' would that be attached to? I thought that this was not the problem so now I am confused. Thanks again for your help!

The solution to your "do {} " problem is down to your own logic in the code. you can't write a "do{}" block on its own, so to fix it, you either need to remove do or you need to add a while statement.

The compiler pointed you to the correct line; In the place where you have return 0 its expecting while ( /* blah */ );. In other words the bracket before 'return' is the end of the "do" loop.

The fact that its there suggests you intended to repeat something, but only you could know what and why.


The structs aren't "branching off each other" - they're completely unrelated to each other, which is the problem. WeaponOne has no relation to WeaponTwo or WeaponThree, etc.

However, if you only had one Weapon struct, you could create as many Weapon objects as you like, and they'd all be related by the fact that they're all the same data type.
(That's where functions come in too - you can write a block of code which works for any Weapon object rather than just one Weapon object)


Maybe write some small toy programs to get an idea of how to use structs/functions - you will be able to see what's going on far more clearly.
