Need Help on passing linked list head node to function

P: 2
template<class T>
struct NODE
T data;
NODE<T> * next;

template<typename T>
NODE<T>* QuickSortList( NODE<T>* list )

// CS556QuickSort.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console

#pragma once
#include "stdafx.h"
#include <iostream>
#include "QuickSort.h"
#include "LinkedList.h"
#include <list>
using namespace std;

void TestQuickSort()
int i = 10; // counter

List<int> iList; // I have my own likked list class

while( i > 0 )
cout << "UNSORTED LIST" << endl;
cout << "*********************************" << endl;

Node<int>* ListHead = iList.HeadNode();
Node<int>* SortedList = NULL;

SortedList = QuickSortList<int>(ListHead);
cout << "SORTED LIST" << endl;
cout << "*********************************" << endl;

int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
return 0;

I'm not giving so far implementation of QuickSortList function.
The problem comes when execution reaches at point

SortedList = QuickSortList<int>(ListHead); he error is: cannot convert parameter 1 from 'Node<T> *'
to 'NODE<T> *'

Help me to understand what I'm doing wrong.

You have declared your template to deal with NODE items. SortedList is declared Node so when you try to pass it back a NODE, the compiler complains......

In fact, the compiler is complaining that ListHead is a Node, when you are expecting a NODE (but I think when you fix that you'll find it complains abut what is mentioned above.....
