Maximum number of compiler errors from a single mistake

Recommended Posts

hi, not an entirely serious thread... but just managed to do something in C++ that made me laugh messing about with inclusion guards on the header for a base class I misspelt ''#ifndef'' as ''#ifdef'' - one character difference. It generated 78 compiler errors when I compiled it Was just wondering what was the largest number of errors you can get from silly little mistakes like that? or do you always just hit the 100-errors-build-failed limit?

Who knows. I once got a 900000-something-line error output from g++, but that was most likely due to two mistakes and not only one... Doing stuff with templates is a good recipie for getting way too much error output from small mistakes.
