Stack Code Help

Having some issues with figuring out syntax.

The assignment:

Stack Homework:

Write a stack program that can determine whether or not the following symbols are balanced: ( ) { } [ ] /* */

If a left symbol is found, push it onto the stack. If a right symbol is found top/pop the stack.

Test your code well.

There should be no prompt for an output file, no long scroll of tokens or message's. Hard code the input filename as: stack.cpp

Example output: No errors found.
or
Error, symbol not balanced: {

** Note: If a symbol is found that does not match and pair with last push, end the program.

Maybe some of you can give me a hand in getting this syntax right.

Sorry about that.

I am wanting to read in a left symbol, maybe more, and then when i get to my first right symbol, I want to pop the stack. Unless I have an unmatching symbol such as: ( }, then I want to post an error message with that symbol.

`push()' is a member of the `stack' class.
Any reference to `push()' must be through an instance of the `stack' class.

┬┐sounds familiar?
As in stack::push.... Wow, you know what the sad part is, I have done that about 4 times. It was still giving me an error, but now miracle!

Any ideas on how I can get a pairing of: '/* ' ?

I know I have to search for / first, then I have to check the next symbol for *, if it is, then push them both, any ideas?
