VC++ problem with compilation.

Hi,

I have a class CTop which has a member pointer of CBot type. CBot type in turn has an a member which is a pointer to CTop class. Including the header file on one in another I am not able to compile. Could you suggest a simple solution to this problem.

Example :

BotFile.h is as
#ifndef BOTFILE_HEADER
#define BOTFILE_HEADER

#include ".\TopFile.h"
class CBotFile
{
private:
      CTopFile* m_pTopFile;
 ....
};
#endif
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TopFile.h is as:
#ifndef TOPFILE_HEADER
#define TOPFILE_HEADER
#include ".\BotFile.h"
class CTopFile
{
private:
      CBotFile* m_pBotFile;
 ....
};
#endif

While compiling TopFile.cpp I get this Error in BotFile.h
------------------------------------------------------------------

CTopFile* m_pTopFile;
d:\LearnC++\NewProj\NewProj\BotFile.h(13): error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '*'


Please help me find a soluation to this problem...

Thanks in advance.

//#include ".\TopFile.h"
class CTopFile;              // forward declaration
class CBotFile
{
private:
     CTopFile* m_pTopFile;
 ....
};


//#include ".\BotFile.h"
class CBotFile;              // forward declaration
class CTopFile
{
private:
     CBotFile* m_pBotFile;
 ....
};

Include both headers to cpp files.
