"Error: Could not find a match for" is the bane of my existence right now

9 New Member

I am trying to write a program that opens a file; reads through it; outputs the text; then outputs the number of lines, words, and characters.

Problem is, every time I try to compile, no matter what modifications I make, I get an error, "line 42: Error: Could not find a match for std::basic_istr eam<char, std::char_trait s<char>>::get(i nt)."

I have tried everything I can think of. Help?

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

int algorithm(void) ;
int code(string);
int initialize(int& , int&, int&);
int processBlank(in t&, char&);
int copyChar();
int printTotal();

int main(){

char ch;
string word, line;
int lcount, ccount, wcount;
int initialize();
// algorithm(); USED IN BUILD FILE
// code("text.cpp" ); USED IN BUILD FILE
ifstream inFile;
processBlank(lc ount, ch);
cout << "Lines: " << lcount << endl;
return 0;

int initialize(int &lcount, int &ccount, int &wcount){

lcount = 0;
ccount = 0;
wcount = 0;

return 0;

int processBlank(in t &lcount, int &ch){

ifstream inFile;
while (! inFile.eof()){
inFile.get(ch); <---------------- Line in question
if (ch == '\n'){

return 0;

inFile.get() requires a char&. You do this inside processBlank() but the char& is passed in as an int&. Hence, the error.

Change processBlank() to have a char& argument instead of an int& argument and off you go.

Ah. Of course. How stupid of me.
