Hi all experts,

I am having problems with some code.  When it is compiled, it gives me over 100 errors (102 to be exact, after that point it says the compiler has exceeded the maximum limit).

I have been laboring over it for over an hour.  In the past, whenever this has happened, it was something simple.

Here is the code:
DWORD numwords = 0;
  CWaitCursor cur;

  UpdateData (TRUE);

  m_Results = "";

  switch (m_SearchType)
  { case (0): // Ascii
             numwords = m_Dict->SearchAscii (m_Results, m_Search1);
             break;

    case (1): // alphabet, a = 1, b = 2 etc
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchAlpha (m_Results, m_Search1);
              break;

    case (2): // Anagrams, i.e. cat = act
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchAnagrams (m_Results, m_Search2);
              break;

    case (3): // Palindromes, i.e. madam
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchPalindromes (m_Results, m_Search1);
              break;

    case (4): // Regular
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchRegular (m_Results, m_Search2);
              break;

    case (5): // Duplicates
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchDuplicates (m_Results, m_Search1);
              break;

    case (6): // Percentage thare are at least x percent vowels
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchPercentage (m_Results, "aeiouy", m_Search1);
              break;

    case (7): // Percentage thare are at least x percent consonant
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchPercentage (m_Results, "bcdfghjklmnpqrstvwxz", m_Search1);
              break;

    case (8): // Custom percentage.
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchPercentage (m_Results, (char *) m_Search2.operator LPCTSTR (), m_Search1);
              break;

    case (9): // Words that contain certain letters.
              numwords = m_Dict->SearchLetters (m_Results, (char *) m_Search2.operator LPCTSTR ());
              break;

    default: ASSERT (0);
  }

  if (numwords != 0)
  [ CString temp;
    temp.Format ("\r\n# words: %d", numwords);
    m_Results += temp;
  }

  UpdateData (FALSE);

Thanks!

Hmm... You seem to have a bracket where an opening "swirly brace" should be, i.e. one of these:   {

Change this


if (numwords != 0)
[ CString temp;
  temp.Format ("\r\n# words: %d", numwords);

to:


if (numwords != 0)
{ CString temp;
  temp.Format ("\r\n# words: %d", numwords);

That ought to fix it.
