c++ ostream error, messag rot large to trakc down location of error.

I have a small program for rational numbers, there is an error somewhere, however the compiler output is so long after the rror my terminal does not hold it all and I cannot track down the lien number of even which file the problem is in.... I tried using >> temp.txt at the command line to ty and put the output into a textfile, but it gave me a blank text file.

the .h file and the main function in the .cpp were written by my teacher, I tried removign the portions of my code to do with ostream and istream and still got the message.

here is the code if you can help:

Rational.h

Code:

Rational& operator=(const Rational&);
//accessors
int getNum() const;
int getDen() const;
//binary operators as member functions
Rational operator+(const Rational& rhs);
Rational operator-(const Rational& rhs);
Rational operator*(const Rational& rhs);
Rational operator/(const Rational& rhs);
//unary operators
Rational& operator++();
Rational& operator++(int);
