my compiler keeps saying that i have an operator error at lines 22 and 50. what did i do wrong??? plz help

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

			lengthTest = false;
		}

	return rectangleLength;

	Rectangle rA[5];
	rA[0].doEverything();
	rA[1].doEverything();
	rA[2].doEverything();
	rA[3].doEverything();
	rA[4].doEverything();


	

	return 0;
}

If you want to use a function as part of an output stream it has to return something. Neither lengthc() nor widthc() return anything.

[edit]
Ack!!!.. Ninja Narue!!...run!!

Edited 6 Years Ago by Fbody: n/a

lengthc and widthc both return void.

lol me and my stupid mistakes....thx for yout help
