Could you be a little clearer?  Defining what you mean by infix and prefix would be helpful.  Thanks!

Sorry, That's:
Infix Expression : a * b + c
=> Prefix Expression : + c * a b

Basically, what you're going to want to do is create an expression tree.  So, in your example above, your tree would look like:

    +
   / \
  c   *
     / \
    a   b

Then, if you did a preorder traversal, it would return +c*ab, an inorder traversal would return c+a*b and a postorder traversal would return cab*+.

I am assuming you've have some knowledge about trees.  If this in incorrect, let me know, and I can provide source code and further examples.
