I don't know if there is any problem on the script, but I cannot compile it successfully.
---------------------------------------
int search(char &term)
{  if (term == "a")   <---- here is the problem.
   { ...... }
}


int ssearch(char *a)
{  if (a[5] == "1")    <--- here is the problem
      return 0;
   else return 1;
}
Then is it possible to use the function ssearch by:
int x = ssearch(*name);
where *name is pointing to the string which I want to check.

Thanks in advance.

"a" is a 2 charcters array: {'a', '\0'}.
You should instead write:
if (term == 'a')

(single quote instead of double quote)
