    for (count<100);
    Read up on using the correct format for creating a loop.

    Also this is C++, not C. Make up your mind what language you're writing in.

    you can't use your char* variable as a counter too. you must declare another integer variable for that job.

    and check the for loop syntax, it's completely messed. check it out here: http://www.cprogramming.com/reference/for.html

    And like MacGyver said, your code is C++ code. Which language are you using? C, or C++?
    I might not be a pro, but I'm usually right
