My understanding of code blocks is that it uses gcc. So I am curious why gcc allows you to have a function called itoa, but code blocks does not let you have a function called itoa. Does anyone know?

Idea. The source for itoa is on the web so why not make a function from the source?

Code::Blocks uses MinGW by default, which is a port of GCC. That said, itoa should be available, if I recall correctly. Normally I'd ask what your switches are and to post some code which fails to find itoa, but a standard alternative is snprintf (or sprintf if you're not running C99 or later).
