Default C++ Debug Problem

I wrote this C++ program to read and process text, I have about 30 text files to process, all of them have the exact same format. The program works fine all except 2 files, and when I tried to use the debugger in Visual C++, I get the following errors:

  CXX0017: Error: symbol "j" not found

  Unhandled exception in asc2mat.exe: 0xC0000005: Access Violation

I am relatively new at programming in C++ and don't really know how to use the debugger well. Any suggestions welcome.

Thank you very much.

This may be helpful to solve that problem.

Text from MSDN library:

One possible cause of this error is a case mismatch in the symbol name. Because C and C++ are case-sensitive languages, a symbol name must be given in the exact case in which it is defined in the source.

This error can occur when trying to typecast a variable in order to watch the variable during debugging. The typedef declares a new name for a type, but it does not define a new type. The typecast attempted in the debugger requires the name of a defined type.


Make sure the symbol is already declared at the point in the program where it is being used.
Use an actual type name to cast variables in the debugger, rather than a typedef-defined name.

Let me know whether u got it.
