    why i get 2 syntax errors here .

    I cant see the reason for the syntax error in this code?
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int what (char *st1,char *st2){
    	char  *p=st1;
    
    	if (*st2|| *st1) {
    		if (*st1=='\0') return 0;       //here something regarding variable assigning
    		while(*st1 && *st2 && *st1==*st2) st++;    // and here
    		if (st==p) return 0;
    		return what(st1,st2+1);
    	}
    	else
    		 return 1;
    }
    
    
    
    int main() {
    	char str1[]="aaabbbbbbcd" , str2[]="abcd" , str3[]="abd" ,str4[]="abcde";
    
    	printf("%d %d %d\n",what(str1,str2),what(str1,str3),what(str1,str4));
    return 0;
    }

    The variable named st was never declared but was used.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
