Turbo C++ is showing declaration syntax error with this statement. Help.

void main()
{   test s;
    int ch,roll;
    char name[30],choice,join;
    clrscr();

It is showing the error with the ' { ' . I have used proper header files and stuffs, and this is just a part of my 700 line program.
I have used only one void main() , and i have closed it too. So, it cant be the problem.
Just this error to go with and i complete my project. :sad:
So, any idea? :S

Can you put the rest of the plumbing items in this code and re-send?
We might be missing something important if the rest of the code is not here.

Also, for reasons I will NOT yet mention: Would you please change your main definition to

int main(void)
...

... and have it return an integer on exit?

Nope.

For one, you should not use void main() at all. See this.

For two, there is not enough info for us to even venture a guess. It's very likely because of something above main()

1) The closing brace at line 740 should be at 598
2) You might need to add "using namespace std;" right before line 6
3) fix your main method signature.

147 will be OK if there is one at 598.
I compiled this in VS2010 (faking out the Borland-only functions). :)

Well, i found the error :)
The closing braces, exactly. I forgot to close one if statement. But not at line 598, but at line 592. I closed it at 592, and removed from 740, and it worked :D
Also, as Nathan Oliver said, that brackets were to be removed, because of that { , my program did not execute well :)

Thanks to all :)
now, after i saved the program as an exe file, and when i run it, it shows that it has encountered some problem and 'close' and 'ignore' dialogue box. What does that mean? I compiled the program, and ran it in C++, no problem was found. :\

Edited 4 Years Ago by black22622: Forgot to add things.

Modular programming is good too. Rather than just a nearly-600-line start() method, and a 150-line main(). Break it up into meaningful chunks. It will be much easier to for others to follow, and more importantly, easier for you to maintain/improve later.
