How to deal with this error: floating constant exponent has no digits

A conditional statement cause it:

if(strlen(str) < n1+1) {

Is this a compile-time or run-time error? I'm assuming run-time, and if so, that's probably because str is not a valid string somehow. Without seeing the code in context this is only a guess.

compile-time error.

for example:

int d (char *str1, char *str2, int n1, int n2, int len) {

if (strlen(str1) < n1+1en-1 || strlen(str2) < n2+len-1) { // Error ?

What version of GCC are you using? What headers are included?
This error is normally associated with hexadecimal floating constants or literals.

gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-59)

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <math.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdarg.h>

You typed "1en" (one-e-n) instead of "len" (el-e-n).

Sigh!! What an error!! But the two characters are the same in this shell.
