Stray ‘342’ in C++ program

I’m getting these errors in my program after pasting in some code:

showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘342’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘200’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘235’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘342’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘200’ in program
showdata.cpp:66: error: stray ‘235’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘342’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘200’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘235’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘342’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘200’ in program
showdata.cpp:67: error: stray ‘235’ in program

Here are the two lines that are causing the errors.

size_t startpos = str.find_first_not_of(” t”);
size_t endpos = str.find_last_not_of(” t”);

How can I fix this?

The symbol is not ". Those are called ‘smart quotes’ and are usually found in rich documents or blogs.
