    and you do know you have to actually declare variables right?

    I suggest you either read a book about C, talk to your teacher (I'm assuming you have one, if you don't, ignore that), or find a tutorial about C online

    I agree. You can't just throw random code on a page and expect it to make sense, any more than you can throw random words down on a page and expect it to make a coherent statement. In fact, it's WORSE for code, because a compiler is not smart enough to glean your intentions or meaning from the random code, where as an astute human listener may be able to grasp it.

    Learn the language, read the book(s).

    You just got help... the best kind, although I will agree a bit bluntly delivered (computer people are famous for that).

    The lesson? LEARN!

    You don't learn by being handed answers. That only satisfies your immediate need. You've been pushed toward the books... and that's a nudge in the right direction.

    Today you've learned a very valuable lesson... you now know at least one way that does not work.

    We spend time here. Every question you ask engages hundreds if not thousands of man hours, the least you can do is put in your fair share of effort.
