    Moved to C++ Programming.

    You should fix your posted code so that it is compilable. You should also post it with proper indentation. Oh, and you should describe the problem that you are facing.

    It seems to me you just copied some random code, you don't even have an int main().

    You should learn at least the basis of the language before trying to compile anything.

    cout<<"\nEnter the distance in meters-centimeters:";
    Its either meter or centimeter, not both.
