31855 program won't compile

In attempting to compile this sketch from Rob Tillaart's library, it returns an error on the line I have commented. I see that others have used this sketch successfully. Is there an obvious cause of this error? I'm missing something but can't see it.

Then please modify your post with formatted code in code tags.
Also please copy the entire error from the IDE and post in tags as well.

Then people will be able to help you much easier.

Can you post the full compiler output?

I just installed the library using the Library Manager and wrote and compiled this without error. Perhaps you should double-check your library installation.

#include <SPI.h>
#include <MAX31855.h>

#define MAXDO 7 // Defining the MISO pin
#define MAXCS 6 // Defining the CS pin
#define MAXCLK 5 // Defining the SCK pin

MAX31855 thermocouple(MAXCLK, MAXCS, MAXDO);

void setup()
{
    thermocouple.begin();
}

void loop()
{
    
}

Hi,
It compiles for me.
What model Arduino are you using.
Have you properly loaded the MAX31855 library through the Library manager?

Thanks.. Tom... :grinning: :+1: :coffee: :australia:
