 string input = "";
 
 cout << "Please enter a valid sentence (with spaces):\n>";

  Blowfish_Init (&ctx, (unsigned char*)(input.c_str), 7); //line with error
  Blowfish_Encrypt(&ctx, &L, &R);
  printf("%08lX %08lX\n", L, R);
  if (L == 0xDF333FD2L && R == 0x30A71BB4L)
      printf("Test encryption OK.\n");



Can anyone help me with that error?

string member c_str is a member function, e.g. try it with parameters ()
Code:
Blowfish_Init (&ctx, (unsigned char*)(input.c_str()), 7); //line with error
