  Wow, don't know what that line would do.  Strcmp() is a function.  It's 
used to receiving two string pointers and returning the difference.  
You're sending it a TRUE or FALSE depending on whether or not the 
character pointed to by arg is equal to the _character_ 'str'.  So first 
off, you want to pass your strings as parameters.  Second, a string is 
delineated by "string" rather than 'string' (you may be in Pascal mode).  
Third, the expression to be evaluated in an if statement must be in 

  if (strcmp(arg, "str")) {...}
