    Search the forum - it's been discussed many times before.
    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.

    Code:
         5
         6  #include <iostream>
         7  #include <algorithm>
         8  #include <string>
         9  using namespace std;
        10
        11  void sortArray(int [], int);
        12  void showArray(int [], int);
        13
        14  int main()
        15  {
        16
        17  string name;
        18  string name1;
        19  string nameC;
        20  int i;
        21  string character;
        22
        23  // Ask user to enter a keyword
        24     cout << "Enter a keyword without spaces: ";
        25     cin >> name;
        26     nameC=name;
        27     name1=name;
        28
        29  // Displays the keyword in reverse order
        30     reverse(name.begin(),name.end());
        31       cout << name << endl;
        32
        33  // Displays keyword in Uppercase letters
        34     for (i=0; name1[i] ; i++) name1 [i]=toupper(name1[i]);
        35       cout << name1 << endl;
        36
        37  // Asks the user for what character do they want to look for
        38     size_t found;
        39     string str2;
        40       cout << "What character are we looking for? ";
        41       cin >> str2;
        42
        43  // Find the first character in the keyword
        44     found=nameC.find(str2);
        45     if (found!=string::npos)
        46       cout << "First position found at: " << int(found) << endl;
        47  
        48  // Find the last character in the keyword
        49    string str = nameC;
        50    string key = str2;
        51    found=str.rfind(key);
        52    if (found!=string::npos)
        53      cout << "Last position found at: " << int(found) << endl;
        54    else
        55      cout << "Nothing is found";
        56  
        57  // Sort the characters in order

        64  return 0;
        65  }
        66  
        67
