Hi ppl can anyone tell me what this error means?
error C2601: 'meanData' : local function definitions are illegal
it happens when you try to define a function within a function, see
http://msdn2.microsoft .com/en-us/library/sba3hty9.aspx

e.g. I try to define function meandata() within function fg1()
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. int fg1()
  2. {
  3.      int meanData() { return 1; }
  4.      int j=meanData();
  5.      return j;
  6. }
when I compile it using Visual C I get the error message
m.cpp(5) : error C2601: 'meanData' : local function definitions are illegal

define it outside fg1()
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. int meanData() { return 1; }
  3. int fg1()
  4. {
  5.      int j=meanData();
  6.      return j;
  7. }

Hi, as a bit of background (and seeing as it is my first post :)) i am a complete newbie at perl. I literally picked it up a week ago to do this project as it seemed like the best choice for a language to connect to a SQL database in a Unix envirment as well as script parsing so there is more than likely a ton of things i could have done a better way. I have been at this for 3 days now and cant for the life of me work out why the code is...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
