I'm getting the following error when I try to compile my C++ program, but I don't know what it means. Can anybody help me please?


g++  -g -I include  -c -o division.o src/division.cpp

Can you show the code that these errors refer to (not just the line, but also the code around and especially before it)

This is the file that won't compile. It doesn't use the STL vector class at all.  I should note that when I remove the #include "biginteger.h", I don't get this error message any more.
#include <map>
 
#include "biginteger.h"
#include "division.h"
 
using std::invalid_argument;
 
bool divides( const BigInteger &a, const BigInteger& b ) {
  if( b.equalsZero( ) ) {
    throw invalid_argument("Cannot divide by zero.");
  }
 
  return (a % b).equalsZero( );
}
 
BigInteger gcd( const BigInteger &m, const BigInteger &n ) {
  if( n > m ) {
    return gcd(n, m);
  }
 
  if( n.equalsZero( ) ) {
    return BigInteger(m);
  }
  else {
    return gcd(n, m % n);
  }
}
 
/**

	x = BigInteger(1);
	BigInteger g = BigInteger(a), v = BigInteger((long)0), w = BigInteger(b), q, s, t;
	while(!w.equalsZero( )) {
		q = longDivide(g, w, &t);
		s = x - (q * v);
 
		g = w;

>> I should note that when I remove the #include "biginteger.h", I don't get this error message any more.

Then that should be an indication that there's something wrong with that header file ;)

Go through the file, and check the syntax. Are there any missing ;'s for example, or other obvious mistakes. If you can't find it, please post the header file in question like rendaduiyan already requested.

I thought about that, except I can't find any syntax problems in the biginteger.h file. Eclipse doesn't see any problems with it either, and it compiles fine (as does its corresponding .cpp file). Also, it still doesn't use the STL vector (neither does the .cpp file), so why would there be an error there?

Don't define max and min. Either use MAX and MIN instead, or use different names.

As a rule, you should NEVER create defines with lowercase characters. All uppercase will avoid a lot of problems.

As a second rule, you shouldn't place defines in a header file, especially not if that header file is included before system header files, like you did here :

        #include "biginteger.h"
        #include "division.h"

(assuming that division.h has system includes in it)

In fact, since this is C++, it's a good idea NOT to use defines at all. Use inline functions or templated functions instead.
