Holy cow! Another one that’s probably going to be a pain in the neck (I am insistent on keeping this blog child-safe which is why I keep using names of the wrong parts of the body as you may have observed).
static bBusy = 0; //error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed.
That won’t compile either and the error message is pretty rotten – it assumes an
int, but will still throw an error. Anyway this is another step towards standards compliance, so I won’t complain too much – but if any of you guys are using pre-VC++ 2005 compilers to write code today, better make sure you don’t use this sort of code – it’ll make your future coding life a lot easier.
