I'm assuming that the missing ")" on the second line is just a typo from
when you copied the line to the email, if not, that is one problem.

What the error message is telling you is that you cannot make an
assignment to GETPFILEPOS(d->character) (it is not an "l-value").

What is the #define for GETPFILEPOS?  Also, what is this line of code
trying to do?  You may have to come up with a different way of doing it
(depends on what the #define is).
