getc("%c",sc);

if(i==strlen(sc)) printf("The word is palindrom");
}
}

i cant get my program to print this way
for example
ada palindrome
back not a palindrome
all i get is the words from the file it is opening.
now i get

g.c:26: error: parse error before string constant

The parameter to getc() is a FILE pointer, not a char. Please read the man docs before attempting to use standard C functions.
