 HW Helper P: 6,180 Let's see...  ExpandedTime time; This defines a variable named "time" of the struct type, which is ok.  ExpandedTime &etime(time); In C this is a syntax error, but in C++ this defines a reference-variable named "etime". What was your intention with it?  ExpandedTime* localTime(ExpandedTime* etime); This declares a function named "localTime", but this is not a call. Consider a function f that takes an integer as argument and returns an integer. You would implement it as follows (function definition and call in main): /* Function definition */ int f(int x) { int y = 2 * x; return y; } int main() { int a = 3; int y; int f(int x); /* This is redundant and would be a prototype declaration of the function f */ y = f(a); /* This is the proper function call */ return 0; }
