for (int index = 0; index > size ; index++)

This could be your issue.
Please use code tags, you will get more help.
For this to run size would have to have a negative value and as you increment index it will always be larger, so infinite loop.

Line 89 is " temp = name [ index_one]; "

Error is
D:\Workspaces\CodeBlocks\Test\main.cpp|89|error: cannot convert `std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> >' to `char' in assignment|

deref of string* returns string and deref of int* returns int. You're trying to assign a string to a char on line 89. That's the problem.
(PS: Same problem exists 6 lines below where you try to assign int to char. Unfortunately it might work! Fix it.
