teslaa (7) Oct 26, 2008 at 9:11pm Hi im getting this error error C2106: '=' : left operand must be l-value basically i create a structure
 struct MD2vertex
{
	Vec3f vert;
	Vec3f normal;
};
then i declare a few
struct MD2vertex *pvert1, *pvert2, *pvert3;
then i give one a value
pvert1 = &pframe1->vert[triangles.vert[j]];
then i try and assign that value to the other
pvert3->vert[0] = pvert1->vert[0] + 1;
its this last bit that throws up the error any ideas?

This isn't an OpenGL question, but your operator[] implementation probably returns a value, and should return a reference to allow assignation.

It seems like what your trying to do is assign a number to an uninitialized pointer.

If it was declared as

struct MD2vertex pvert3;

it should work.
