Post Problem with strrev() functions

I have certain problems while using string functions like strcat(), strrev() etc & also while using gets(), getchar() functions during C programming under RH Enterprise Linux.
What are the header files to include ?
Command line for compilation ?

For string functions like strrev(), strcat(), etc. include <string.h>
For standard IO functions, include <stdio.h>
You can find this easily from the manpage for each function.
For the easiest compilation if you are using only standard C libraries, try
make baseFileName
This would know what to do to make 'filename.c' into the executable 'filename'. If you want to do it the harder way:
cc -o fileName fileName.c
Usually, cc is an alias to gcc.
man gcc, & man ld for the gory details.
