    Nov 10, 2004
    I am not a real programmer but have dinked around a bit.

    when I paste the code into PB and try to compile with gcc 2.95 or 3.1 I get the following errors oh project as a standard tool:

    main.c:154: field `pointer' has incomplete type
    main.c:169: field `data' has incomplete type
    main.c:186: field `data' has incomplete type

    these fields I know are Flexible arrays or think I know but I dont know how to correct the problem.

    I recall that you can't do that in C/C++. Is there such a thing as flexible arrays? it is either defined as byte data[100], or a pointer.

    That is what I remember :D

    follow up

    I concluded the same thing... I changed all the structs to this....

    typedef struct dc6blockheader_s
    long unknown01 __attribute__((packed)); // 000000000
    long width __attribute__((packed));
    long height __attribute__((packed));
    long unknown02 __attribute__((packed));
    long unknown03 __attribute__((packed));
    long unknown04 __attribute__((packed));
    long next_block __attribute__((packed));
    long length __attribute__((packed));
    byte data[65000] __attribute__((packed));
    } dc6blockheader;

    and it compiles ok now

    what I need now is to find a way to convert from little endian to big endian hopefully without having to change everything ....again
