    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;

    Re: C++ program to revere sentence

    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/
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    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
