Hello I'm currently trying to learn coding from c++ for dummies book but some of the code when I try it in visual studio, it comes out wrong. the purpose of the program is for the function to return the name of the month corresponding to an integer argument passed to it. what should I change in order to make it work?

I believe the issue here is that you are attempting to return string literals (i.e. "abcdefg") from a function when the function's return type is char*. String literals are constant, so I would think the necessary return type is const char*.
