    Error Messages...

    hello everyone. im new to the forums and i dont really know how to use tags(sorry about that, administrator). anyway i have a really annoying problem when i try to compile this using Borland- i get like 6 error all saying "type mismatch in parameter..." and "cannot convert int to const char". I'd appreciate some help. Thanks
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<conio>
    #include<stdio>
    #include<string>
    
    
    class tourist{
    
    
     private:
    
    
       char namet[5];
       char tot[5];
       char fromt[5];
       char typet;
       int ID;
       int distance;
       int charge;
    
    
    
    
     public:
    
    
       void getdata(){
       cout<<"Enter ID:, then name(separated by enter key)";
       cin>>ID;
       cin.get(namet,5);
       cout<<"\nEnter to/from:(type destination, hit enter, type origin, hit enter)";
       cin.getline(tot,5);
       cin.get(fromt,5);
       cout<<"\nEnter distance:";
       cin>>distance;
       cout<<"\nEnter type:";
       gets(typet);
          }
    
    
       void calccharge(){
           if(strcmp(typet,'e'))
          charge=distance*30;
          else charge=distance*20;
            }
    
    
       void display(){
           cout<<"\nDetails are"<<"\t"<<ID<<"\t"<<namet<<"\t"<<typet<<"\t"<<tot<<"\t"<<fromt<<"\t"<<charge;
              }
    };
    
    
    
    
    void main(){
    
    
         tourist t1;
         cout<<"\n";
         t1.getdata();
         t1.calccharge();
         t1.display();
    
    
    
    
     }
    PS the variable names are a bit messed up cause i changed them since i thought i was using a reserved word or something...

    Just a few things I noticed.
    <conio> and <stdio> are not standard headers.
    gets() doesn't work with single characters, same with strcmp().

    Change void main to int main: SourceForge.net: Void main - cpwiki
    Change your char arrays to std::string.
    Do not ever use gets. Use std::getline.
    Compare std::string with the == operator.
    Indent properly: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...le=Indentation
    Get a modern compilers (GCC or Clang recommended).

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
