    Well, you're never actually reading INPUT.

    What is the goal of this code, BTW? Much of the code is "suspicious" -- copying variables that weren't initialized, your comments don't describe the code that you've written, and your for loops should need braces -- {} -- because it LOOKS like you want more than one line to loop.

    Your loops themselves look odd, as well.

    And, as mentioned, I can't tell what the code is supposed to accomplish.

    BTW, here's a MUCH easier way to tell if a string is a palindrome (which it kind of looks like you might be trying to do??)

    bool isPalindrome = true;
    for (int i = 0; i < strlen(theString);i++){
    	if (theString[i] != theString[strlen(theString) - 1 - i]) palindrome = false;
    And yes, you only DO need to go to strlen(theString) / 2 + strlen(theString) %2, but it's easier to see if you just iterate over the whole string.

    The code is about figuring out whether each of the 5 lines in the INPUT file is a palindrome or not. I have written the command to read the input( while(!INPUT.eof()) PLease help me in this project. i'd b very thankful 2 u.

    I take it you've done PERL? That while loop would work in PERL, actually.

    Your while loop here is only checking whether or not you're at the end of the file -- it's not actually reading any of the file.

    You'll need to put an INPUT.readline() into the loop somewhere. And try the method I just gave for checking a palindrome -- your code looks highly suspect in this regard.
