/* the function miroir (in french ) it means "mirror" , the major idea is to
permute the first caractere with the last using an auxilary variable (aux) the
the 2nd character with the penultimate one and so on . we made a call to the
function (compte) which counts the length of the string . As you can see clearly
, I substruct 1 from the equation k = compte(s)-1 ; to get rid of the EOF
caractere which is '\0' because it is not a caractere from the string typed */
