hi i want to convert the prefix form to postfix,prefix and infix form but when i input +5*62 it retuns only 2 what is wrong with my code can anybody help to solve this

nice attemp! try to visualize it more clearly. if u can write that much, then trying a little bit more, u will get it. try!

i kept the testing condition under for loop till it gets + sign and i moved the stackpointer for each loop bt it didn't work .

try to put testing statements in , after and before the loops. this will be more better way to check your loop and other changes in the loop. try this and if you fell the problem, then post it here.

Your tree generation algorithm isn't really doing anything because the nodes aren't linked together. Compare and contrast:

#include <stdlib.h>

struct node {

    struct node *ret = malloc(sizeof *ret);

    if (ret) {
        ret->token = strdup(token); /* Using a non-standard function for brevity */
        ret->left = left;
        ret->right = right;
    }

    return ret;
}

struct node *generate_expression_tree(const char *tokens[], size_t n)

    struct node *stack[1024];
    size_t top = 0;
    size_t i;
