Compile Error

I am sure this is easy, I am trying to explore C++ using random websites and can not figure out why this will not compile.

I get the compile error at error C2660: 'SubExpression::parse' : function does not take 1 arrgument.

Thanks in advance

I have included subexpression as well
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <strstream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

#include "expression.h"
#include "subexpression.h"
#include "symboltable.h"
#include "parse.h"

SymbolTable symbolTable;

void parseAssignments(strstream& in);

int main()
{
    const int SIZE = 256;
    Expression* expression;
    char paren, comma, line[SIZE];
    string program;

    ifstream fin("input.txt");
    while (true)
    {
    
        symbolTable.init();
        fin.getline(line, SIZE);
        if (!fin)
            break;
        strstream in(line, SIZE);
        in >> paren;
        cout << line << " ";
        try
        {
            expression = SubExpression::parse(in); 
            in >> comma;  
            parseAssignments(in);
            double result = expression->evaluate();
            cout << "Value = " << result << endl;    
        }
        catch (exception& e)
        {
              cout << "Standard exception: " << e.what() << endl;
        }
        
    }
    return 0;
    
}

void parseAssignments(strstream& in)
{
    char assignop, delimiter;
    string variable;
    double value;
    do
    {
        variable = parseName();
        in >> ws >> assignop >> value >> delimiter;
        symbolTable.insert(variable, value);
    }
    while (delimiter == ',');
}

Well, as your snippet indicates, 'Expression* SubExpression::parse()' in fact take no arguments at all.

So, change

            expression = SubExpression::parse(in);

(line 37 in the 1st snippet) to read

            expression = SubExpression::parse();

and the error should go away.
