Error message confusion.

Hi,
Ok...Here's the function that I have:

void Set_Palette_Register(int index, RGB_color_ptr color)
{
    _outp(PALETTE_MASK, 0xff);

    _outp(PALETTE_REGISTER_WR, index);

    _outp(PALETTE_DATA,color->red);
    _outp(PALETTE_DATA,color->green);
    _outp(PALETTE_DATA,color->blue);
}
Now the error message says:
"error C2084: function 'Set_Palette_Register' a;ready has a body"
I'm using Microsoft C/C++ version 1.0, and you know how you can double click on the message and it'll zoom you to the excact line that the error is occuring; it takes me to the first braket '{' and as you can see there isn't anything else there. I'm at a total loss as to what the compiler means by that error So I was wondering if you could help.
Thank you,
Crash

What is probably happening is that either you have put this in a .h file and it has been included twice (hence the error).

Or you have put something like this in your .h file

void Set_Palette_Register(int index, RGB_color_ptr color) {}

instead of

void Set_Palette_Register(int index, RGB_color_ptr color);

Basically, you have the function written more than once (or the same definition being included more than once).

Just search for all occurences of the name and see where you define it with a body [ie. {...}]

Thanks,
I can't believe I typed it twice. Isn't it the idea to have header files so you don't have to keep typing....
well, thank you very much.
