hi, i have code written largely in C++ but which makes use of the C FILE type def. It compiles and works fine under MS Visual Studio 6 C++ but i want to compile it on a unix box using G++, and at this point the compilation fails. It reports a syntax error with the line:
FILE *fp;

anyone know of a fix/reason for this??

thanks

i didn;t have stdio in the file when i compiled it using ms vs, and it worked fine, so i was confused when it didn;t compile using gcc. when i added it to gcc i got a load of linker errors, but when i compiled it under g++, it worked.

i don;t understand why, but i'll live with it!

thanks - you can have the points!!
