You try to compile a program with "gcc nameofprog.cc". You get this output: "foobar.cc.:55:error: expected ';' before string constant"
What do you do to compile your program?
Go to line 55 of foobar.cc. If there is a printf command, be sure that the thing to be printed is surrounded by parentheses. Here is an example of a line that will cause the problem:
printf "This is a test";
Here is an example of a printf command with proper syntax:
printf ("This is a test");
