    char map[height][width];
    bool way[4], border[3];

    srand(time(NULL)); //[error 'srand' was not declared in this scope]

    for(i=0; i<height; i++)

            map[i][j] = 178;

    x = rand()%height; //[error: 'rand' was not declared in this scope]
    y = rand()%width; //[error: 'rand' was not declared in this scope]
    map[x][y] = 'x';

This file is included from main.cpp. When this function was in main file there wasn't any trouble. I tried to use headers and split main to:

What's wrong in this?

Put the srand() functionn call back in main() .

And where's the header that define the random functions?

srand is in cstdlib. So try to include cstdlib.
