currently I'm trying to learn myself c++ and i got a problem with a class I'm trying to make, my compiler (visual c++ express edition 2008) gives me this error 1>c:\users\trixed\documents\visual studio 2008\projects\hello_world\hello_world\hello.cpp(5) : error C2533: 'Cat::{ctor}' : constructors not allowed a return type as far as i can see in my code i don't declare a return type for it, can anyone help me with it? and here is my code: class.h class Cat { public: Cat (int initialAge); ~Cat(); int GetAge() const {return itsAge;} void SetAge(int age) { itsAge = age;} void Meow() const {std::cout << "Meow.\n";} private: int itsAge; } and hello.cpp #include <iostream> #include "class.h" Cat::Cat(int initialAge) { itsAge = initialAge; } Cat::~Cat() { } int main() { Cat Frisky(5); Frisky.Meow(); std::cout << "Frisky is a cat who is "; std::cout << Frisky.GetAge() << " years old.\n"; Frisky.Meow(); Frisky.SetAge(7); std::cout << "Now Frisky is "; std::cout << Frisky.GetAge() << " years old.\n"; return 0; }

Make sure there is a semicolon ';' at the end of your class definition:


class Foo
{
// .... code ...
}; // <-- Semicolon



Without it, you will get the C2533 error.

Place your code in source tags.

// code here

[/source]

It will look like this:



// code here
