Hello! I am converting an infix expression string into a postfix so that I will be able to evaluate it easier -> (5*(((9+8)*(4*6))+7)) == 598+46**7+* I believe the rule is "Replace all occurances of two operands followed by an operator by their infix equivalent"

Hi, My infix expression never have brackets, So how do i convert it to postfix? For example 112*20 will yield 11220* Which cannot be correctly evaluate(which is it 1*1220 or 11*220...?) Is putting brackets when pushing operands on the stack is a good idea? 112*20 will yield (112)(20)* as a postfix string.

Alright basically I just have one simple question. I can code perfectly fine and don't have any problems with the .cpp of the infix class but with my header I can't get anything to work really, any guideline as to how to start this would be great. It has to work with assign.cpp which is like this: int main() { Infix infix; while...
