I've got to:4. Write a program that asks the user for two strings. The program should then compare the strings and display a message saying whether they are equal or if not, and which one is first alphabetically.

For some reason it doesn't print out the parts in the if statements. Where have I gone wrong?

#include<stdio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>
#include<ctype.h>
#include<string.h>

int main()
{
    char word1[50];
    char word2[50];
    int  value=0;
    
    printf("please enter the first string\n");
    fflush(stdin);
    gets(word1);
    printf("please enter the second string\n");
    fflush(stdin);
    gets(word2);
    value=strcmp(word1,word2);
    
    if (value=0)
    {
            printf("the words are exactly the same\n");
    }
    
    else if (value>0)
    {
         printf("%s is alphabeticly first then %s\n",word2,word1);
    }
    
    else if (value<0)
    {
         printf("%s is alphabeticly first then %s\n",word1,word2);
    }
    
    system("pause");
}
