    Program Error

    I've been trying to get this program to work, but when I debug I get this error

    ***\processor.cpp(35) : error C2446: '!=' : no conversion from 'const unsigned int' to 'const char *'
    Conversion from integral type to pointer type requires reinterpret_cast, C-style cast or function-style cast
    .\processor.cpp(35) : error C2040: '!=' : 'const char [9]' differs in levels of indirection from 'const unsigned int'***


    I am a beginner programming with C++, and only have basic knowledge. Here is my code

    Code:
    #include "header.h"
    
    using namespace std;
    
    	//Variables
    ifstream infile;
    ofstream outfile;
    char file[101];
    string line;
    int w = 0;
    int l = 0;
    int p = 0;
    
    	//Main Program
    int main()
    {
    	//Open files
     cout << "Please enter the location of the";
     cout << " history.";
     cout << endl;
     cin >> file;
     infile.open(file);
     while (!infile)
     {
    	 cout << "Cannot open the input file.  Please re-enter."; 
    	 cout << endl;
    	 cin >> file;
    	 infile.open(file);
     }
    	 
     outfile.open("results.txt");
    
     while (getline(infile, line))
     {
    	 if (line.find("Collects" != string::npos)
    		 w++;
    	 if (line.find("Loses" != string::npos)
    		 l++;
    	  if (line.find("Push" != string::npos)
    		 p++;
     }
    
     outfile << "Wins = " << w << endl;
     outfile << "Losses = " << l << endl;
     outfile << "Pushes = " << p << endl;
    
     infile.close();
     outfile.close();
    	
     return 0;
    }
    I am using this input text file.

    If someone could help me with what exactly the error is telling me to fix, I'd appreciate it.

    the error the compiler is giving tells you the line number and a good detail of the message, and is talking about the "find" lines, such as: line.find("Collects" != string::npos)

    its complaining that it doesnt know what to do with an operator "!=" and operands of type string and integer. if you look closely at this line and your if statement youll notice you are just missing a closing bracket, i.e.: if ( line.find("Collects") != string::npos )

    edit: please note i havent looked at anything else in the code or input file besides line 35 which the compiler error is for.
