    Question Parse error

    There is a parse error in my code. The compiler says that line 78 has 'parse error before {'
    Line 78 is in my first if statement on the line with the opening bracket after the line with the else. I would apprciate some help with this.

    #include <iostream>
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <cmath>
    using namespace std;

    // Two value returning function that return days alive
    //and number of leap years
    int DaysAlive(int month, int day, int year);
    int LeapYears(int month, int day, int year);

    // Three void functions that calculate number of days into the physical,
    //emotional and intellectual cycles.
    void Physical(int DaysAlive, int& physicalCycle);
    void Emotional(int DaysAlive, int& emotionalCycle);
    void Intellectual(int DaysAlive, int& intellectualCycle);

    // The end date is May 6, 2003
    const int End_Day = 6;
    const int End_Month = 5;
    const int End_Year = 2003;

    int main()
    {
    int TotalDaysAlive;
    int month;
    int day;
    int year;
    int currentAge;
    int dayssincelastbday;
    int i;
    int imonth;
    char another;
    int pys_cycle;
    int emot_cycle;
    int intell_cycle;
    another = 'y';

    //does user want to enter another birthday?
    while(another=='y')
    {

    // Get month, day and year
    cout << "Enter month: ";
    cin >>month;
    cout << "Enter day: ";
    cin >>day;
    cout << "Enter year: ";
    cin >>year;


    //calling functions
    TotalDaysAlive=DaysAlive(month, day, year);
    Physical(TotalDaysAlive, pys_cycle);
    Emotional(TotalDaysAlive, emot_cycle);
    Intellectual(TotalDaysAlive, intell_cycle);

    cout <<"If you want to enter another birthday type y: ";
    cin >>another;
    }

    //determine current age
    if(month < End_Month)
    {
    currentAge=(End_Year - year);

    > else (month==End_Month)
    is not a valid statment, should be either:
    Code:
    else if (month==End_Month)
    OR
    Code:
    else
    Both will have the same out come in the logic of your code.

    Also the same with:
    > else (day==End_Day)
