function
gameserverpro14.cpp:82: error: syntax error before `)' token
gameserverpro14.cpp:83: error: syntax error before `,' token


Code:
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;
 
int main()
{
 int i=0;
 char s1[30],s2[40],s3[90],s4[100];      // set char size for input
 ofstream outfile("games.db", ios::app);
 string whole,p1,p2;
 ifstream infile;
 
// Start Main Menu
 
 char choice='\0';//NULL;
 bool finished=false;
 while (finished != true) 
 {
  cout<<"MAIN MENU\n";
  cout<<"1. AddGame\n";
  cout<<"2. Options\n";
  cout<<"3. RunGame\n";
  cout<<"4. Exit\n";
  cout << "Please enter your choice: ";
  cin>>choice;
  cout<<"\n\n";
 
  // Start function for submenu
  switch(choice) 
  {
   case '1': cout << "1. Add Game To DB\n";
             cout << "2. Go back\n";
             cout << "Please enter your choice: ";
             cin>>choice;
 
             if(choice == '1')
             {
              cout << "\n\nPlease enter full-path to game start file: ";
              
                          cin.get();
                          cin.getline (s1, 30); // Input goes in$
                          outfile << s1 << ":";  // add : after eachpath
			   cout << "\n\nPlease enter game name: ";
                          cin.getline (s2, 40); 
                          outfile << s2 << "\n";
                if (outfile.is_open())
                          {
                           outfile.close();
                          }
                         }
             /* Just break if choice != 1 */
             break;
   case '2': cout<<"Options\n";
             cout<<"1. Edit Game Config\n";
             cout<<"2. Go back\n";
             cout << "Please enter your choice: ";
             cin>>choice;
             
             if(choice=='1')
             {
              cout << "Please enter full path to config file to edit: ";  // ask user for path to config file
              cin.get();
              cin.getline (s3, 256);        // input goes in
              string cmd = string("pico ") + string(s2);
              system(cmd.data());      // open up pico to edit config
             } 
                         
                         // Here we would check 'choice' and probably move to another functi$
             cout<<"\n\n";
             break;
   case '3': cout<<"Run Game";
             i=0;
             infile.open ("games.db", ios::in);  
             while(getline(infile,whole)){
                 i++;
                 p2=whole.substr(whole.find(':')+1,whole.length());  
                 cout << i << ". " << p2 << endl;
             }                  
             cout << "Please select game you wish to run: ";
             cin.get();
             system(s3+" > system_errors"()));
             cin.getline(s3,, 100); //input goes in
             // Here we would check 'choice' and probably move to another functi$
             cout<<"\n\n";
             break;

   case '4': //Finished so set finished 'true' to break out of loop
             finished=true;
             cout<<"Exiting....\n";
             break;
   default:  //If choice !=1/2/3 then do what it says here
             break;
 
             //  end functions
  }
  choice='\0'; //NULL
 }
 return 1;
}
