  1. #include <stdio.h>
  2. #include <string.h>
  3.  
  4. void strrev (char *string)
  5. {
  6.         int len=strlen(string);
  7.         char string2[20];
  8.         for(int i=0; i<len; i++){
  9.                 string2[i]=string[len-1-i];
  10.                 }

  14. int main(){
  15.     char string[20]="Program";
  16.     strrev(string);
  17.  
  18.     return 0;
  19.     }
  20.  
  21.  
I am trying to write a simple code to reverse a character string. But at line 5 i am getting the following error:
new declaration `void strrev(char*)'


What is my mistake. And how can I port the reversed word from void into main?

Thank you for your answers

You have inadvertently used the name strrev for your function and this is also the same name as the C library function strrev.

In C function names must be unique.

You have to change the name of your function.
