    parse error on my program

    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<ctime>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
    cout<<"Welcome To Charlies Slot machine"<<endl;
    cout<<"press 1 to play 2 not to play"<<endl;
    int a;
    cin>>a;
    if (a==1)
    {
    cout<<"You have chosen to play"<<endl;
    cout<<"1 to roll 2 not to roll"<<endl;
    int b;
    cin>>b;
    if (b==1)
    {
    int c;
    srand(time(0));
    c=1+rand()%6;
    cout<<"you rolled"<<c<<" ";
    int d;
    srand(time(0));
    d=1+rand()%6;
    cout<<d<<" ";
    int e;
    srand(time(0));
    e=1+rand()%6;
    cout<<e<<endl;
    if (c==d==e)
    {
    cout<<"you won";
    }
    return 0;
    }
    That is a simple slot machine i made if you get 3 numbers the same you win it sais parse error at the end why is this?

    You're missing a few closing braces...
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    that's doing your work for you, but okay:
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include<ctime>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
       cout<<"Welcome To Charlies Slot machine"<<endl;
       cout<<"press 1 to play 2 not to play"<<endl;
    
       int a;
       cin>>a;
    
       if (a==1)
       {
          cout<<"You have chosen to play"<<endl;
          cout<<"1 to roll 2 not to roll"<<endl;
    
          int b;
          cin>>b;
    
          if (b==1)
         {
             int c;
             srand(time(0));
             c=1+rand()%6;
             cout<<"you rolled"<<c<<" ";
             int d;
             srand(time(0));
             d=1+rand()%6;
             cout<<d<<" ";
             int e;
             srand(time(0));
             e=1+rand()%6;
             cout<<e<<endl;
             if (c==d && d==e && c==e)
                   {
                       cout<<"you won";
                   }
          } //second if
       } //first if
       return 0;
    }
    that's why you should space your code correctly

    your code is a mess anyway, so i'm going to rewrite it for you:
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<ctime>
    #include <cstdlib>
    
    using std::cin;
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    
    int main()
    {
       int option,roll,nextroll;
       bool win=true;
       srand(clock());
    
       cout<<"Welcome To Charlies Slot machine"<<endl;
       cout<<"press 1 to play 2 not to play"<<endl;
    
       cin>>option;
    
       if (a==1)
       {
          cout<<"You have chosen to play"<<endl;
          cout<<"1 to roll 2 not to roll"<<endl;
    
          cin>>option;
    
          if (option==1)
         {
             roll=1+rand()%6;
             cout<<"you rolled"<<roll<<" ";
    
             nextroll=1+rand()%6;
    
             if(nextroll!=roll)
                win=false;
    
             roll=nextroll;
             cout<<roll<<" ";
    
             nextroll=1+rand()%6;
    
             if(nextroll!=roll)
                win=false;
    
             roll=nextroll;
             cout<<roll<<endl;
    
             if (win)
                       cout<<"you won";
          }
       }
    
       cout<<endl<<"Press any key to continue . . . ";
       cin.get();
       return 0;
    }
    even though that progam doesn't make much sense, because you would have to roll the dice the same number 3 times...

    If you type the closing &#125; ) ] " ' or whatever, and make sure the code is correctly indented before filling in the body, then the issue of missing closing whatever never arises.

    Sure it's a few extra cursor movements, but it sure saves some headaches later on.

    As does pressing the compile button every time you add a new brace pair (say a loop or a function stub or whatever).

    If you're especially lazy, you can get an auto-completing text editor which can insert this stuff for you.
    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.
