    Please help clear two errors

    Can someone tell me how to clear the final two errors I am rcving on this?

    Errors:
    error C2365: 'palDrome' : redefinition; previous definition was a 'data variable'

    error C2601: 'palDrome' : local function definitions are illegal


    Code:

    dude, CODE TAGS!! and isn't this the THIRD thread you made about this topic??

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    there are two cardinal sins from which all others spring: Impatience and Laziness. - franz kafka

    Sounds like you have your opening and closing braces mixed up somewhere. Also, you have a bool variable called palDrome and another function also called palDrome. => errors.

    **EDIT**

    Code:
    	bool palDrome(char* S)
    This needs to be *outside* of the main function. You either need to put it below the main function and prototype it above, or place the function above the main function. Either way, you need to take it out of the main function and then call it from the main function.

    Also, the error is saying that you already have a variable called palDrome, so change the variable name. *shakes fist*

    I have running it , very a lot of error:
    for (int i = 0; x < strlen(c); i++) S.Push(c[i]);
    x not defined
    for (int i = 0; i < strlen(c); i++) S.Push(c[i]);
    request for member `Push' in `S', which is of non-aggregate type `char*'
    while (!S.StackIsEmpty())
    request for member `StackIsEmpty' in `S ', which is of non-aggregate type `char*'

    >> char* S)
    >> {
    >> Stack S(strlen(c) * sizeof(char));



    You named both the char and stack "S"
