#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>
using namespace std ;
void strReverse ( char *pString ) ;
int main ()
charch[20] ;
cout<< "Please enter the string you want to reverse: " ;
cin.getline ( ch, 20 ) ;
strReverse( ch ) ;
cout<< "Your string reversed is: "
<< ch
<< '\n' ;
return 0 ;
// Routine:strReverse ()
// Programmer:Daniel Mulcahy
// Purpose:This routine reverses a string
// Parameters:pString - type char * : The string to be left trimmed
// Returns:Nothing.
void strReverse (char *pString){
int i,k;
char temp;
temp = pString;
pString = pString[k];
pString[k] = temp;

RE: Reverse needs corrected.!!

OK...here it is. Have fun....

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
void strReverse ( char *pString );

int main ()
    char ch[20] ;
    cout<< "Please enter the string you want to reverse: ";
    cin.getline ( ch, 20 );
    strReverse( ch );
    cout<< "Your string reversed is: " << ch << '\n';
    return 0 ;
void strReverse(char *pString)
    char temp;
    char *firstChar, *lastChar;

    firstChar = pString;
    lastChar = pString + strlen( pString ) - 1;
    while( firstChar < lastChar ) {
        temp = *firstChar;
        *firstChar = *lastChar;
        *lastChar = temp;

RE: Reverse needs corrected.!!

I'm not positive, but I sort of recall seeing a "str....." function that does this.
