    Need simple loop and error checking for major assignment

    ye i posted here b4 and cant find my older posts and i guess its because the SERVER KEEPS DELETING ME AND MY PROFILE AND MY EMAIL. anyways lol right now i need the above i need a simple loop that when the user inputs a number instead of a name it prompts back for the name prob that could be the error checker too this is my program its a payroll system

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    
    
    int add_hours(int *hours);
    int salaryselect(int *hours,int *salary_deduct,int *normal_pay,int *over_time,int *bonus);
    int tax(int *education_tax,int *NHT_tax,int *NIS_tax,int *medical_dental,int *hours);
    int net_pay(int *hours,int *over_time,int *normal_pay,int *bonus,int *salary_deduct,int *education_tax,int *NHT_tax,int *NIS_tax,int *medical_dental,int *netpay,int *netpay1,int *netpay2,int *netpay3);
    
    int main(int argc,char **argv)
    {
         printf("\t//*****************St.Jago High School******************\\ \n\n");

    Yeah, that's a problem, see here for a partial explanation:
    Whoa, what happened? (Again)

    i need a simple loop that when the user inputs a number instead of a name it prompts back for the name prob that could be the error checker too
    How much of the code you posted is relevant to this? Not much, perhaps. Actually, I don't see any attempt to write such a loop. So this code is, in that sense, completely irrelevant.

    Forget about your main program for now and try to write a loop which does what you are asking for. If/when it doesn't work properly, you can post that and ask why your loop doesn't work and how you can fix it. When it all works, it will be easy to incorporate it into the main program.

    If you can't even get that far, focus on what specifically it is that is preventing you from doing so.

    He did give you instructions. No one is going to write the code for you.

    If you can't think of something to at least try based on what we've given you, I highly recommend you drop the class because your mind is not suited to programming.

    If you can think of something, try it. If it doesn't work the way you want, post your code and someone will help you with it.
