    	if ( strcmp( s1, s2 ) > 0 )
    		cout << "\nThe first string is greater than the second  string." << endl;
    	else if ( strcmp( s1, s2 ) == 0 )
    		cout << "\nThe first string is equal to the second string." << endl;
    	else if ( strcmp( s1, s2 ) < 0 )
    		cout << "\nThe first string is less than the second string." <<endl;
