Currently I am working on a game framework that incorporates a class to handle things such as graphics, input, cameras, etc. Basically, an object of the Graphics class is created (and is a singleton), along with a separate Camera object that is set to the active camera. My approach works fine until I want to do 3D by calling the D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH function, which for some reason complains about a syntax error with a comma (C2059). Thing is, the function call requires five parameters (four commas), and I have them in all the right places. The error is always on that line, which I can comment out but the projection is messed up for any 3D rendering that I do. Thanks in advance My code: Camera's init function, where the syntax error resides:
void Camera::Init(float near, float far)
	D3DXMATRIX proj = Graphics::getInstance().GetProj();
	int width = Graphics::getInstance().GetWidth();
	int height = Graphics::getInstance().GetHeight();
	D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH(&proj, D3DX_PI/4, width/height, near, far);
	Graphics::getInstance().GetDevice()->SetTransform(D3DTS_PROJECTION,  &Graphics::getInstance().GetProj());

And the Graphics class if applicable:
class Graphics

	static Graphics& getInstance() { static Graphics pInstance; return pInstance;}

	void Init(int, int, int, bool, LPCSTR);
	void Shutdown(void);
	void BeginRender(void);
	void EndRender(void);
	bool Run(void);

	Camera* GetActiveCamera(void) { return m_ActiveCamera; }
	void SetActiveCamera(Camera* cam) { m_ActiveCamera = cam; }

	void SetClearColor(DWORD color) { m_dwClearColor = color; }

	LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9 GetDevice(void) { return pd3dDevice; }
	D3DXMATRIX GetProj(void) { return m_Proj; }
	int GetWidth(void) { return m_Width; }
	int GetHeight(void) { return m_Height; }


	Camera* m_ActiveCamera;

	LPDIRECT3D9             pD3D;
	LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9       pd3dDevice;
	// screen details
	int m_Width;
	int m_Height;
	int m_Bits;
	bool m_Fullscreen;

	DWORD m_dwClearColor;

The word "near" and the word "far" are reserved C words. The compiler is expecting you to define some near pointer but finds a comma.

Change the arguments in Init to Near and Far, or nearWall and farWall or something.

Thanks. I guess I always assumed VC++ would explicitly point out the reserved word. Compiles now.
