What Wrong With This C Prog?

Recommended Posts

I seem to be following my book exactly, but am getting numerous errors when compiling

here is the code

/* this my first c program*/

#include <stdio.h>

main()
{
   putchar(65);
   putchar(10);
   putchar(66);
   putchar(10);
   putchar(67);
   putchar(10);
   reuturn 0;
}

I am using this to compile it

[email protected] shane $ gcc test.c -o testc
test.c: In function `main':
test.c:13: error: `reuturn' undeclared (first use in this function)
test.c:13: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
test.c:13: error: for each function it appears in.)
test.c:13: error: syntax error before numeric constant

Well you spelled return wrong, I'm just starting to learn C so that's all I can help with though, but fix that and try running it.

Yea I just tested it with return fixed and it runs fine.

thanks :blush: that was the problem. I thought that I erased this post, noticing my dumb error, espesially with this line

test.c:13: error: `reuturn' undeclared (first use in this function)

I should not have even had to ask what was wrong.

edit added later//

part of me not noticing the obvious error was I was looking to close at these errors

test.c:13: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
test.c:13: error: for each function it appears in.)
test.c:13: error: syntax error before numeric constant

I assumbed I had all kinds of things screwed up

GCC has the least useful diagnostics I've ever seen in a piece of software. And I'm including ed. g++ is almost malicious.

BTW, -ansi -W -Wall are your friends.
