understanding error messges

Im getting an error code that says 5:20; error: expected ',' or ';' before ')' token. Do those two numbers at the beginning tell me where I am missing things from? i.e. line or character number? Am new and trying to figure out the error message system. Please help. Zach

Yes. They are line number and character position on the line. Of course, they are only a best guess. The error is not after that, but could be quite a ways before there.
