    Unhappy Exam question

    Write a program which will ask the user to enter a word.The word cannot exceed 10 characters. Create a function which will print the same word backwards using pointe notation not array notation. Create another function which will determine whether the word spelt backwards is the same word. eg 'racecar' spelt backward is same word.

    Breakdown
    Validate the length of the word and continoue asking until correct.
    approprite function prototyples .
    print word backwards with pointer notation.
    compare to check if the word is the same in reverse.

    Any sort of help will work.

    Thanks every body.

    You've got to ask questions for us to be able to help. What are you stuck on? Post the code you've written so far.

    You know what will get you "enough marks"? LEARNING HOW TO PROGRAM. You can't cheat your way through life.

    On your way out, you should probably read the homework announcement.

    Tut. I will fix that for you:

    Code:
    int main()
    {
        return 0;
    }

    - Compiler warnings are like "Bridge Out Ahead" warnings. DON'T just ignore them.
    - A compiler error is something SO stupid that the compiler genuinely can't carry on with its job. A compiler warning is the compiler saying "Well, that's bloody stupid but if you WANT to ignore me..." and carrying on.
    - The best debugging tool in the world is a bunch of printf()'s for everything important around the bits you think might be wrong.
