I include a .h and my project expodes with errors :(

This topic is 2103 days old which is more than the 365 day threshold we allow for new replies. Please post a new topic.

The project I am working on is a little bit to big to upload.. So I will link the only parts I can immagine are causing the issue.

I have a class called LuaInstance... I have been using it for quiet a while, when ever I get a new thing I wish to add to it (so lua can interact with it)
here's the header:

luainstance, entity were bug free till now, and through looking through the errors, for instance
[CODE]
1>g:\crsm-svn\backbone demo\usin myshit\src\tools\luainstance.h(20): error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '{'
[/CODE]

which is referring to this:

[CODE]
class LuaInstance
{ // <------- this is what it is refering to
public:
[/CODE]

I believe that the including of the header is in some way doing somthing I shouldn't without me knowing (ive already gone through all of my headers an made sure I have used
[CODE]
#ifndef
#define
#endif
[/CODE]
or equivalent.

What I suspect might be the problem is that entManager is including some file, then another file is reclairing it, causing some sort of mumbo jumbo..

I just can't figure out why

note:
during creation of this monster post I found out that if I include entManager in any headder it causes the things that attach to that hedder to expload... I am going to further examine my code, hopefully I can find a solution myself, but I am still going to post as this assignment is due soon and I'm kinda lacking time [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]

ok, here's an update...

if I remove

Hmmm, I just found out that before I had no headers implimenting entity, only a .cpp

[CODE]
#include "../Entity.h"
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
Entity entManager("testUnit.icz");
return(0);
}
[/CODE]

which was from a test program... Is there anything inside of Entity.h's header which when placed as an include in another header could cause problems

as a side note... when ever I look at my #includes of parts of the project that I have created, the #include is red... it says the following:
[img]http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/2043/errorjl.png[/img]
although during compilation it finds the files without issue... Any idea why? it's been like this for a while and hasn't causesd the program not to compile

edit:
what is odd, is that most files are doing this... but I found about 20% arn't... for example, this file isn't

[CODE]
#ifndef DRAWCF
#define DRAWCF
#include "ComponentFactory.h"
#include "../ResourceHandler/IczOpener.h"
#include "../Component/DrawComponent.h"
#include "../Tools/LuaInstance.h"
#include <iostream>
class DrawCF : public ComponentFactory
{
public:
static ComponentFactory * createComponentFac(int entID);
Component *createComp(std::string linkToLua);
bool linkOtherComponent(int linkToSetup, ComponentFactory *linkedComponentF);
DrawCF(int entID){m_entID = entID;};
private:
DrawComponent* drwCmp;
};

#endif
[/CODE]

Although luaInstance does get the not found error...


edit 2:
and when I include
[CODE]
#include "../../ManiacsMayhem entity testing/entManager.h"
[/CODE]
in the headers which don't get that weird error, it doesn't cause problems.. Ok.. I might be onto it


edit:

I've had a read through my team mates code... they for some STUPID STUPID reason insist on having half of their #includes in the header, and half in the implementation... I've told them that I don't like this, but because they love making me cry they still do it..

So, in an attempt to fix the problem, I started moving their #includes so that they were all inside of the headers.. I even found that in some places they had #included in the cpp and in the h... which I believe can cause issues... after moving everything into .h I am still getting the problem, but there is a chance I have missed one double up.. I'm going to keep an eye out, but is this the kinda thing that could cause this error?

sorry, for post spam, but every time I make a post, I tell myself I'm getting off, yet I havn't yet :\

Tell your compilers to output the pre-processed source. Look at said output. The chances are the problem might be a little easier to understand if you are looking at the same view as the compiler.

There is too much code to examine in detail, but it sounds like you have a circular reference. The entity header includes LuaInstance, and the LuaInstance indirectly tries to include Entity. You might want to see if you can use forward declarations to break the dependency cycle.

Depending on what is going on, it might be better to actually remove the dependency. A quick skim suggests that the dependency is in the LuaInstance constructor. Instead of setting the bindings in the constructor, try passing the bindings into the constructor. A separate file can link these together, using a "factory" function.

I was actually going to do that, but I was running out of time so I took the lazy approach, boy does it look like that has come back to bite me

I will in the morning, 6 hours before the assignment is due attempt to impliment a function iniside of LuaInstance which will accept a pointer to a function which needs a lua state to bind a class to lua using
typedef void (*classBinder)(lua_instance*)
and hope like billoes that that will accept a function reference which has a void return and needs a lua_instance pointer

I'm not talking about precompiled headers. I'm talking about a compiler switch which causes the compiler to output the pre-processed source to disk. The preprocessor is the part of the c++ compilation process that handles #include, #define etc. The compiler works not on the source, but the output of of the pre-processor.

If circular dependencies are the problem, you'll see something like this:
[code]
// Pages and pages of standard headers and library headers

class Foo
{
// ...

// Example of a reference to another class not defined yet
void frobnicate(Bar bar)
{

}
};

// Sometime later

class Bar
{
// ...
};
[/code]

In fact, looking closer at your original post, it could be as simple as moving the following preprocessor directives from the lua instance header file to the lua instance source file (nothing in the header obviously depends on the detail in these included files):
[code]

#include "../ComponentFactory/ComponentCompiler.h"
#include "../Component/DrawComponent.h"
#include "../../ManiacsMayhem entity testing/entManager.h"
[/code]

Yes, it's a circular dependency. LuaInstance.h includes entManager.h, which includes Entity.h, which includes LuaInstance.h. If you are compiling a module that includes entManager.h or Entity.h, by the time LuaInstance.h is compiled, the compiler hasn't seen the definition of Entity, so it doesn't know what to do with it.

You should probably figure out which of these modules are lower level than which other modules, and make the higher-level modules include the lower-level ones, and not the other way around. If you have a legitimate reason why module A and module B should include each other, use forward declarations to break the circle of dependencies.

I think I will attempt to create a function which will allow users to add their classes without needing to be known of inside of luaInstance, It was what I wanted to do originally, I was just trying to save time

Maybe it's just me, but I would really get into the habit of NOT using #include in header files except when you really need them. Using forward declarations wherever possible means not ending up with including includes that include includes that end up with every single source file including almost every header in your entire project.

If your class is only showing up as a pointer or reference in some other header, do NOT include the entire class header and just forward declare. After a while it will be as natural as not putting 'using namespace' in header files and just type out the entire names.

The first thing I would start with is to make sure all my headers have header guards.

That's not an issue here: He either has guards or `#pragma once', which does about the same thing, in all of them.
