Help with this please,Im trying to learn c++ and i cant figure this out

main should always return an int, void main is non-standard.

You don't need the ; after line 30

Line 37, that statement does nothing.

Most importantly, never use gets. It is too easy to overflow the array to which you are writing as you have zero control over how many characters the user enters. Use fgets instead.

There is no C++ in what you have written there. That is C. I have asked a moderator to move it there. Also, don't be so quick to bump your thread as it takes time to get a response.

I jus saw people looking didnt think they had a clue what i wanted hrlp with.
