So I have the following problem:

voikko_options_t contains a grammar::GrammarChecker

This is instantiated by grammar::GrammarCheckerFactory

grammar::GrammarChecker contains:


RuleEngine can be either CgRuleEngine or FinnishRuleEngine

In order for FinnishRuleEngine to get voikkoOptions, I need to pass it
via the interface in RuleEngine.hpp:

virtual void check(voikko_options_t * voikkoOptions, const Paragraph *
para) = 0;

However, when I do this, I get the following error:

./grammar/RuleEngine.hpp:46:22: error: 'voikko_options_t' has not been

If I try forward declaring in the libvoikko namespace:

./grammar/RuleEngine.hpp:39:8: error: 'struct
libvoikko::voikko_options_t' has a previous declaration as 'struct
spellchecker/spell.cpp: In function
libvoikko::hyphenAwareSpell(libvoikko::voikko_options_t*, const
wchar_t*, size_t)':
spellchecker/spell.cpp:55:35: error: invalid use of incomplete type
'struct libvoikko::voikko_options_t'

I don't know why the grammar checker stuff is being included in the

Any thoughts on how to get around this ? I've been fiddling for a day
now and feel like I'm just stabbing blindly in the dark.
