    Problems with easy program

    I'm having troubles getting this program to work. Yes i know its stupid and immature but hey at least its original. All seems to work fine until it tries to use the program play(). it outputs "Time to play :Dplay_balls". Someone please help me im new to c++. and I'm not sure if passing strings through functions is legal but couldnt find any help anywhere else. I'm on linux using KDevelop. (Any suggestions for a better linux compiler, i was using dev c++ on windows)

    Code:

          {
              cout << "\nGood choice.\n"
              << "How many balls did you feel?";
              cin >> n_balls;
              
              cout << "\nVery hot.\n"
              << "What color were they? (W)hite or (B)lack";
              cin >> c_balls;
              
              cout << "\n\nTime to play :D\n"
              << play(c_balls)

              return 0;
          }
            cin.ignore();                   //add  three statements in here.
            cin.get();
            return 0;
      }
      
      string play(string c_balls)
      {
          
          if (c_balls == "B" || c_balls == "b")
          {
              color = "black";
          }
          else 
          {
              color = "white";
          }

    After adding your code it still does the same thing. Only thing i can think of is my compiler. I will try to get a new one and see if it works.

    Edit: found out how to use g++ (linux noob too) and all works fine. C++ yay
