    password

    i want the password to be the inverted login.e.g
    logname=2345
    password=5432

    i have written the following code but it is not doing well!


    char temp[10],temp1[10],temp2[10];
    bool state=false;

    cout<<"Enter the ID(10 characters long): ";
    cout.flush();
    gets(temp1);

    for(count=0,counter=9;count<10;count++,counter--)
    temp2[count]=temp1[counter];

    temp2[count]='\0';

    cout<<"Enter the Password(10 characters long): ";

    do
    {
    cout.flush();
    temp[0]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[1]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[2]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[3]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[4]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[5]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[6]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[7]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[8]= getch();
    cout<<"*";
    cout.flush();
    temp[9]= getch();
    cout<<"*";

    if( strcmp ( temp , temp2 ) == 0 )
    state = true;
    else
    cout<<"Wrong password\n";

    }while (state == false);

    If the password itself isn't working, then it's probably because there is 3 declared char temp's, and 11 temp's in the code
