VVVV tutorial problem

Hello,

Im currently completing tutorials on interfacing vvvv with arduino (http://vvvv.org/documentation/arduino03) but am having a problem compiling the code given with the tutorial but i have little arduino or c experience, could anyone give me an ide of why when I compile the code I receive the following errors.

Thank you in advance

update: i believe the error lies in the syntax for writing numbers in c, am i correct in thinking that the values used in this sketch are ascii when arduino is expecting an octal number? if so can anyone link me to a page that may explain how this works?

Those strings don’t look right. Are they supposed to be characters? Look at the code on the web site.

ARGH! I just responded to this same post in another section.

@acrossell: PLEASE DO NOT MULTIPOST! You have wasted my time and PaulS's time.

sorry, first post on the forum and thought I may have posted in the wrong section after seeing the dedicated coding forum, wont happen again.
