    Error with strcmp

    I have this function
    Code:
    void verifyMatrix(int n, int m, char *orig, char **mat)
    {
          char verifyString[5];
          int k;
          k=0;
        // Creating a string
            for (int i=n; i<(n+DIM); i++)
     for (int j=m; j<(m+DIM); j++)
     {
        verifyString[k] = mat [i] [j];
        k++;
     }
     verifyString[4] = '\0';
        if (strcmp(orig, verifyString) = 0)
            tmpMat[n][m] = orig[0];
    return;
    }
    the function without the strcmp construnct work; with strcmp I have in compilation this error:
    error C2106: '=': left operator must be an I-value
    origin is an array declared as
    char firstString[5];
    tmpMat is a matrix declared as
    char **tmpMat; and allocated as dinamic.
    How is my error ? I hope in your help.
    Thank you and best regards.

    >> strcmp(orig, verifyString) = 0
    Are you sure you want '=' there?

    Sorry,
    but I have worked a lot and I am tired. The eyes close and also the brain.

    Thank You.
