You may try it on C program. Here is a code that checks whther the string is palindrome or not in C.

Code:
main(c,v)
char**v;
{
	char*p;
	for(c>1?p=strchr(*++v,0):exit(1);*(*v)++==*--p&&*v<p||exit(puts(*v<p?"n":"y")-2) ; ) ;
}

Actually, I thought you replied to a homework question with an answer that no first year CS student would be able to explain to an instructor. I thought it was quite a subtle response...

It is not this forum's intention to discourage anyone from seeking help. However, if you go through this thread, you probably will see how most non school/college guys feel about homework postings.

To sum it up, you are not going to learn anything by getting someone else to do your homework for you. However, if you have put together a solution yourself that just falls short of the requirement, you will find that quite a few guys are willing to help you with that.
