Manual for newbees how to analyse compiler-errors

"Hello Everybody,

I want to use this thread as a kind of repository for a manual how to find compiler-errors. So I can quickly link to this thread instead of posting all th text and pictures everytime new.

If you have pasted the error-messages into a texteditor search for " : error: "

described in detail:

  • a doublepoint
  • a SPACE
  • the letters “error”
  • a doublepoint without space

The output of the compiler has a lot of lines (maybe more than 1000)
So use the find-function with the word “: error:”
