    Question C++ program to revere sentence

    Hello everyone I had been tasked to create a program that reverses a word i.e.
    Can someone tell me how to make my program non case-sensitive using vectors?
    // BackWardsSentence.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.

    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <sstream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;
    string BackWords (string sentence);
    int BackSentence (string sentence);
    string BackWords1 (string sentence);

    int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    string sentence;
    int choice;
    cout<< "What is your sentence" << endl;
    getline (cin,sentence);
    cout<< "You entered" << " "<< sentence;
    cout<< " "<<"If you would like to reverse letters enter 0 if you would like to reverse words enter 1"<<endl;
    cin>> choice;
    cout<< "Your new sentence is " << " " <<BackWords(sentence)<< endl;
    cout<< "Your new sentence is" <<" "<<BackSentence(sentence)<<endl;
    return 0;

    string BackWords (string sentence)
    int length= sentence.length(); //3
    int x=0;
    int y=length-1; //2
    int a=0;
    while (x<length-1) //x<3
    string sv;
    string sb;
    string sy;
    char const v=sentence.at(x);
    char const b=sentence.at(y);
    sv = (v);
    sb = (b);
    if (x==1)
    return sentence;

    /*string BackWords1 (string sentence) {
    int start = 0;
    int end = sentence.length() - 1;
    while (start < end) {
    char temp = sentence[end];
    sentence[end] = sentence[start];
    sentence[start] = temp;
    return sentence;

    int BackSentence (string sentence)
    int length = sentence.length();

    return length;

    Please use code tags when posting code. As posted, your code is very hard to read. Go advanced, select the formatted code and click '#'. What's the issue with the code you have posted?

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by non-case sensitive in this context? Do you want the reversed word to be just lowercase if it contains a mixture of upper and lower case? tolower() [or toupper()] will return the lower-case [or upper case] of the supplied char. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8h19t214.aspx

    Why do you want to use vectors for reversing characters in a string? Is this an assignment? Have a look at string iterators and reverse iterators http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/string/string/

    hello, you don't need to write any program. use command tac -r --separator="." file.txt

    Nobody cares how it works as long as it works
