i must be missing something simple!?!?
i've tried tons of variations on "string", lower-case/as a * pointer/
positioning of the pointer .. etc... and i see that obviously one can supply a
class type for a parameter... so i'm baffled.

Make that: #include <stdlib.h> #include <time.h> #include <iostream> #include <string>
 #define std;

using namespace std;
 
 #define ITERS 5;
 #define PLYRS 2;
 #define CMBS 3; // rps.. or more?!

And no ; after defines, i.e: #define ITERS 5 #define PLYRS 2 #define CMBS 3 // rps.. or more?! And every one will be happier. -- Absolutely not the best homepage on the net: http://home20.inet.tele.dk/midgaard But it's mine - Bertel
