Hi guys here is my code, prettty much the same as one posted before but im getting a few errors. Fairly new to this so if someone could help me out i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance:) Here is the code and errors underneath that:

Did someone ignore the request to read the Member Rules that mentions CODE Tags?
Or the info at the top of the forum that talks about CODE Tags?
How about the background of the text box where the message was entered that also mentions CODE Tags?

What could we have done to make the info about CODE Tags more readily available?

Sorry about that, first time posting on a site like this. Sorry again, anyone any suggestion?
Thanks

u not defined both variables ..

and on 169th line u allocating memory but u not holding its address ..

I think correct line there may be

guessWord = (char *) malloc ((sizeof(char)*2000)+1);

sry if its wrong not read your full program ..

I made some changes and its down to one error. Here is the code and the error. Thanks for your reply aswell:)

E:\Assignment2\Assignment2.cpp(16) : error C2239: unexpected token '{' following declaration of 'wordlength'
Error executing cl.exe.

Assignment2.obj - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Hi thanks for reply. Im new to this. Could you please clarify what you mean by this Shankye. Thanks

By the way I was refering to your first point about changing ; to declaration:)

char fileLoc[2000];//Backup file Location//

int main();

int wordlength
{

make this

#
char fileLoc[2000];//Backup file Location//
int main()
int wordlength;
{

and allocating memory using malloc which returns pointer so use pointer

char *guessWord;

U should not use ; for functions .. I think by mistake u wrote that there.. and skipped at variable delclaration .. just a small mistake ..

Edited 6 Years Ago by Shankye: n/a

Two things:
This is a C forum. Why are you including

#include<windows.h> -- this should not be necessary
#include<conio.h> -- this is non-standard and should not be necessary
#include<iostream.h> -- this is strictly C++

Learn to consistantly format your code. Here's some information to help. If code is hard for us to follow (which yours is), many will simply ignore your code.

Error 1: In C, all variables must be defined at the top of a function, not when you decide to use them.

Error 2: obvious

Ya dude ..
Break your program into functions..
and post part which is erroneous ..
Thanks for link Walt ..

ok this part seems to be the main problem. Any ideas, errors are beneath

Im not understanding what you doing on line 37 ..

I think on line 21 u must remove * ..
strlen takes address, using redirection * u get value at that address ..
so u may change that and check..
Try removing * and check ..
