There is no such standard function.

'strcmp' is a standard function, 'stricmp' is not.
can i use that? or what do i need to do with
the above error?
You need to implement it yourself or use some other function
that can work as a replacement.

Try using strcasecmp() instead of stricmp() and see if that solves your
problem.
