It's in a character constant, so it doesn't make a difference. The
unterminated character constant means that you have a character
constant ("blah" is a character constant, anything else isn't, even
if it's a 'const char' variable, it's not a character constant :))
that you start and don't finish. The thing is that these can happen
in two seperate instances:

  a. forgetting the beginning quote (as he did and I pointed out
     in my other recent response).

  b. forgetting the ending quote

They both result in the same error, and the error occurs quite a ways
down from where you made the mistake. My version of gcc seems to
make educated "guesses" as to where it started at.
