Need help with a code that I have been working on all day. if someone could help me, would really appreciate it. The problem is that it keeps telling me that i is not defined.

#include<iostream>
#include<algorithm>
#include<vector>
using namespace std;
void strcat(char t[],const char s[])
{
        unsigned int i;
        for (i = 0; t[i]; i++); //strlen(t);
        strcpy(t+i, s);
}



int main()
{


        char PointerA[] = "Pass it to the mirror";
        char PointerB[] = "Hit it twice pass it back";

        strcat(PointerA,PointerB);
        cout << "=======================================" << endl;
        cout << "=======================================" << endl;
        cout << "Strings for the Pointer/Array are " << strcat(PointerA[i],PointerB[i]) << endl;
        cout << "=======================================" << endl;
        cout << "=======================================" << endl;

Shouldn't line 16 be an assignment? And line 32 should be calling my_strcat2.
Yes and Yes.

Thank you! I've corrected it now.
