    Hi Gaurav

    I copied your program in turboc . It is working very nice.

    You have to be have bit more concentration on Programming style. Meaningful variable names and language indentation. Otherwise it is excellent.
    From all your program I concluded that you had good test of Programming.
    thanks you.

    can you please send me the line by line explanation of this program??


      @tapishrana:disqus Really sorry for late reply. Now I made few improvements in the program, added description about working of the game, gave meaningful names to the variables, added comments wherever required and refactored the code. Hope this helps, if you have problem regarding particular block of code please comment. I will also upload the video of screen recording.

    Hi, amazing code, just have an answer about:” int delete(queue *t) “, when compile code, turbo c++ says declaration terminated incorrectly about this function, don’t know why, can you help ?


      Did you put semi colon after “int delete(queue *t)” by mistake? or any extra semi colon on the previous lines? Its working at my end.
