Building Paper, Rock, Scissors

Hello all,

I'm taking a C class and am having to write a program to play a game
of rock, paper scissors, and with the output of:

You chose paper and I chose rock. You Win

where paper is the players choice, and rock is the computers choice,
for reference i was given the p_r_s.h, compare.c, main.c, selection.c,
and wrt.c, and i have had to build the report.c to describe the
output. I will post what i have so far in this venture, but when i
compile i keep getting 2 fatal errors and i cannot figure out what to
do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The files are as
follows:

the report.c file that i am working on is this:

report.c file
#include "p_r_s.h"

void report(outcome result, int *win_cnt_ptr, int *lose_cnt_ptr, int
*tie_cnt_ptr,
p_r_s player_choice, p_r_s machine_choice)

{
switch (result) {
case win:
++*win_cnt_ptr;
if (player_choice == paper)
printf("%27sYou chose paper I chose rock. You win.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == rock)
printf("%27sYou chose rock I chose scissors. You win.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == scissors)
printf("%27sYou chose scissors I chose paper. You win.\n", "");
break;
case lose:
++*lose_cnt_ptr;
if (player_choice == paper)
printf("%27sYou chose paper I chose scissors. You lose.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == rock)
printf("%27sYou chose rock I chose paper. You lose.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == scissors)
printf("%27sYou chose scissors I chose rock. You lose.\n", "");
break;
case tie:
++*tie_cnt_ptr;
if (player_choice == paper)
printf("%27sYou chose paper I chose paper. We tie.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == rock)
printf("%27sYou chose rock I chose rock. We tie.\n", "");
else if (player_choice == scissors)
printf("%27sYou chose scissors I chose scissors. We tie.\n", "");
break;
default:
printf("PROGRAMMER ERROR: Unexpected result!\n\n");
exit(1);

}

This is the function you wrote, ...
void report_and_tabulate(outcome result,
int *win_cnt_ptr, int *lose_cnt_ptr, int *tie_cnt_ptr);


.... but this is the function the rest of the code expects.

The function you wrote is never called, and the one that is
called does not exist.

Thanks T.M. for your help, but i am still getting an error when i
compile. I am using Microsoft Visual Studio.net and whenever i compile
i get this error:

report.cpp(5) : error C2447: '{' : missing function header (old-style
formal list?)

the line it references is this one:

1.#include "p_r_s.h"
2.
3.void report_and_tabulate(outcome result, int *win_cnt_ptr, int
4.*lose_cnt_ptr, int *tie_cnt_ptr);
5."This line here"
6. {
7. switch (result) {

I have tried adding more {'s, taking away {'s and even went and
re-studied the entire definition of "function headers" and have still
drawn a blank. Could it be my compiler? I know microsoft just loves
adding little bugs in all their software. Any suggestions would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

Try the usual technique: strip away as much code as possible, ending
up with a very small program that stil has this problem. There's a
good chance you'll find what's wrong in the process. If not, post
the few lines you've left here.

It said "report.cpp(5)"...
(try making a file named "report.c")

Try removing the ; at the end of line 4, with this it is a function
prototype and the body is not part of it.

What is this semicolon doing here?
5."This line here" ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
And why is this line outside the braces of the function body?
6. {
7. switch (result) {

It looks like you have inserted two massive bugs into your software.
Any suggestions would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

Get rid of the semi-colon at the end.
