I have this code and I am having trouble figuring how to make it run without any errors, can anybody give me some pointers on how to fix it

line 66 of the code you posted: variable size has not been declared

line 77: what is Start ?

line 78: you need to use == boolean operator, not = assignment operator

there is quite a few problems trying to get this to compile.

did you write the entire program then try to compile it or did you compile bit-by-bit as you added them. Its a lot easier to create a program in parts.

maybe create the board first then get the constructor methods to work correctly, and then add components.

heres what gcc says about it, i hope it helps.

In constructor `TicTacToe::TicTacToe()': (line 66)
error: `size' was not declared in this scope
In member function `void TicTacToe::switchPlayer(char&)':
`Start' was not declared in this scope (line 78)
expected `;' before "if" (line 78)

things like this are missing semi colon

if(currentPlayer = 'x' || currentPlayer = 'X')
	{
		currentPlayer = 'X'
	}

line 66 of the code you posted: variable size has not been declared

line 77: what is Start ?

line 78: you need to use == boolean operator, not = assignment operator

Sorry, "Start" is my error, they gave me this whole code to fix and some parts they don't even explain what you need to do. Before posting this I had over 102 errors and now it's down to these.

The vast majority of these errors:

Error 1 error C3872: '0xa0': this character is not allowed in an identifier \\ilabss\home$\D03279277\Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\Lab6Ex2\Lab6Ex2\Lab6Ex2.cpp 37

have nothing to do with the code you posted. I just copied and pasted into Code Blocks and didn't get any of the '0x0a' errors. You have some control character in there or there's a Unicode character or something. 0xa0 is 160, which is above 127, so it's not even ASCII. So the vast majority of your errors aren't coding errors. You have a project etting wrong or something didn't transfer over in your post or you aren't posting everything or something else. The errors also don't match the line numbers posted.

So first thing to do is get rid of all of those 0xa0 errors and get it down to the REAL errors. Then you can start debugging.
