Hi.  What's wrong with this?  Thanks!

NOTE: "finish" and "now" are doubles supplied to the function

/******* CODE ****************/

double minarr;
minarr = 2;

if minarr >= ((finish - now) / 365)                        
{
//some code here
}

/******* ERROR ***************/

D:\test\test.cpp(664) : error C2061: syntax error : identifier 'minarr'
D:\test\test.cpp(665) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '{'

Hi malramsay,

you're missing the () that encloses the condition

try with this


double minarr;
minarr = 2;

if( minarr >= ((finish - now) / 365) )
{
//some code here
}

Cheers!
