I am creating one shared library in Linux using Qt and C as programming language. When i compile my code it show me one error like this

expected ‘)’ before ‘*’

/home/arun/Documents/sFlowAnalyzingSampleInC#/sFlowLib/sFlowLib-build-desktop-Qt_4_8_2_in_PATH__System__Release/../sFlowLib/src/sflowtool.c:432: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘*’ token

/home/arun/Documents/sFlowAnalyzingSampleInC#/sFlowLib/sFlowLib-build-desktop-Qt_4_8_2_in_PATH__System__Release/../sFlowLib/src/sflowtool.c:4467: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘managedCallback’

And my code is

void *(  CALLBACK *managedCallback1)(char **);
       void *(  CALLBACK *managedStopCallback)();

void StartCallback( void (* CALLBACK managedCallback(char **)))


 void StopCallback( void (* CALLBACK managedCallback()))


How I can solve this

Should be:
void (CALLBACK *managedCallback1)(char **);

void (CALLBACK *managedStopCallback)();

The extra asterisk before the open parenthesis is incorrect.

Look at the other block of code posted above, you seem to be adding your indirection operators anywhere at random.

This is my running code on Visual studio. Its working perfectly on mu visual studio but not in Linux

I find that hard to believe.

I compiled it by removing CALLBACK but that not worked wirth my mono application as a callback
