    New Programmer main () syntax error

    i keep getting this error in debugger, im copying the code exactly from a book, I was wondering if it is my Turbo C++, Me or the Code I'm copying?

    Thanks in advance!

    Statement mising ; in function main ()
    expression syntax in function main()

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <ctype.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    main()
    {
           char name[25], nameNew[25];
           char ans;
           int i;
           printf("What is your name? ");
           gets(name);
           printf("Are you sure that %s is your name? y or no", name);
           ans = getch();
           if (toupper(ans) == 'Y')
               { for (i = 0; i <= strlen(name); i++)
                   { nameNew[i]} = toupper(name[i]a); }
               printf ("Your name in uppercase letters is %s.\n", nameNew);
               }
           return 0;
    }

    Code:
    { nameNew[i]} = toupper(name[i]a); }
    Anything odd there that you see?

    If you indent your code properly, mistakes like that won't happen.

    Read the FAQ on using gets() - in other words, NEVER!
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
