hi all....I need help with a pragram which i wrote .....Itz to check if a number is palindrome or not using a function...i.e. the program will ask the user to input any number....then if u reverse the number it will give u the same old number then it is a palindrome number....For Example: if the user enters 121 ...then if u reverse it will give u the same number 121..and so 121 is a palindrome number.....The program which i wrote is below:

#include<iostream.h>


int palindrome(int n)


{


int x, m=0;
while(n>0)


{


x=n%10;


m*=10;


m+=x;


n/=10;


}


return m;


}


void main()


int n, y;


cout<<"Enter any number"<<endl;


cin>>n;


y=palindrome(n);


if(n==y)


cout<<"The entered number is a palindrome number "<<endl;


else


cout<<"The entered number is not a palindrome number "<<endl;



}

The errors of the program are:

:warning C4518: 'int ' : storage-class or type specifier(s) unexpected here; ignored
: error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'n'
: fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

Hi, just wondering what complier you're using. I compiled your code with Borland C++ 5.5.1 and obtained the following error messages.

Borland C++ 5.5.1 for Win32 Copyright (c) 1993, 2000 Borland
palindrome.cpp:
Error E2141 palindrome.cpp 28: Declaration syntax error
Error E2141 palindrome.cpp 30: Declaration syntax error

Error E2040 palindrome.cpp 40: Declaration terminated incorrectly
Error E2190 palindrome.cpp 45: Unexpected }
*** 8 errors in Compile ***

All that I did next is to correct the very last error. After inserting a brace '{' after line 26 (i.e. after the code 'void main()'), the code compiled without error. I think that's all that you missed.

IF THIS IS THE SAME CODE U HAVE TRIED THEN I THINK THE ONLY ERROR IS THAT AFTER
void main()
U HAVE NOT GIVEN THE BRACES AND THATS WHY THE COMPILER IS RELATING IT WITH A CLSS;
SO GIVE THE BRACES

           void main()
              {

like this and i hope ur problem will be solved

sorry, i didn`t notice that KHKWA has already solved the problem just a few moments before me. so my suggestion was needless

I use Microsoft visual C++ 6.0....

Do u know watz da mistake in my program?

if you read back a few replies you'll see the answer to that.

Learning to read compiler output can be a bit tricky but is extremely helpful.

Tutorials and teachers should spend time on it (even though different compilers produce different output the principles remain the same), sadly most don't and just expect everything to compile first time...
