Error when declaring an enum and function using the enum

codenameyash asked:

Open original thread
Hi everyone,

I have the following setup declare lots of stuff in a header file and use the header file in the main c file

So in the header file I have an enum declaration as so
void NewFunc(Stuff s,char c);

typedef enum Stuff

//AND in main
#include "header.h"

//and try and use the function
void NewFunc(Stuff s,char c)
   //Blah Blah Blah......

It comes up with the following fault, when I make the program: expected ')' before s

Not sure if I declared the enum wrong or the makefile I use is broken :/.....

Using Ubuntu and VIM...
