    project .... help plz plz plz

    I'm in college and I have to do a project and i couldn't do it.

    Create a program which deals with Car Rental Services. You can base your program on the following menu

    Code:
    *******************************************************
    
    WELCOME TO MYCAR RENTAL SYSTEM
    
    *******************************************************
    
    [A] ADD CAR RENTAL INFORMATION
    
    [D] DELETE CAR RENTAL INFORMATION
    
    [V] VIEW CAR RENTAL INFORMATION
    
    [I] INCREASE RENTING RATE
    
    [P] VIEW RENTAL SERVICE RECEIPT
    
    [Q] QUIT RENTAL SYSTEM
    
    *******************************************************
    Could someone help me please

    Welcome to the forum, Hitchhik3R!

    Maybe call a menu() function from main, print the menu choices, and have a switch statement to handle each choice. menu function has everything in a big do while(choice != 0) loop, so it keeps coming back to the menu for another choice for the user.

    Post up some code, and show us you're serious.

    trust me im serious ... if i couldnt find how to do it i will loss 20%

    Swarvy

    I didn't writ anything at all coz in the whole semester we didn't study anything like that

    and the lecturer said we will not find the way in the notes so we have to search in the internet

    I will show u what did we study

    examples:

    1
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main ( )
    {
    int age=44,workexp=5;
    float salary=1800.00;
    char gender='M';
    
    printf("Ali's age is %d\n",age);
    printf("He has %d years working experience\n",workexp);
    printf("He is earning RM %.2f this month\n",salary);
    printf("His gender code is %c",gender);
    
    return 0;
    }
    2
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {
    int x=-4443;
    float y=554.21;
    char c='M';
    
    printf("The value of integer variable x is %d",x);
    printf("\nThe value of float variable y is %f",y);
    printf("\nThe value of character variable c is %c",c);
    return 0;
    }
    3
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {
    int x=-4443;
    float y=554.21;
    
    
    printf("x is %d and y is %f",x,y);
    printf("\n==> c is M Thank you");

    OK, well - hint, hint, << read between the lines a bit >>

    Maybe call a menu() function from main, print the menu choices, and have a switch statement to handle each choice. menu function has everything in a big do while(choice != 0) loop, so it keeps coming back to the menu for another choice for the user.

    Post up some code, and show us you're serious.
    Remove the "maybe" and post up THAT code, for starters.

    Oh crap, you don't have any function calls in your classwork yet?

    There is a fair bit of code there given the scope of the problem.

    Btw, Hitchhik3R, when I made my previous post about posting code I didn't intend any offense. If you took offense then I apologise.

    Anyway, now you have posted code time to get to work. By looking at your code you have learnt how to print things to screen and take in user input but you need to learn about loops, if statements (and switch statements), and functions in order to complete this assignment.

    There are three types of loops, 'while' loops, 'for' loops and 'do-while' loops. You can read up on them here. The 'do-while' loop would probably be the thing you would put your menu function and selection code in since you will definitely be executing this at least once.

    Your basic menu selection could (there is more than one way to skin a cat) look something like this:

    Code:
    int main()
    {
            /* Starting code, maybe do some command line stuff, who knows */
    
           do
           {
                   PrintMenu();
    
                   /* Take user input and assess what to do with it */
            } while( !quit );
           return 0;
    }
    
    void PrintMenu()
    {
             /* Clear the screen */
            /* Put all your printf statements here for printing out the main menu */
    }
    I'll let someone else explain some of the other basics, although I am surprised your lecturer would set such an assignment without giving you the proper tuition. That definitely raises a few questions.

    Ok, so in main() you want to:

    call a function:menu();
    Code:
    void menu(void) {
      char choice;
      double rate;   //what's the starting rate?
    
      do  loop
        which prints your menu choices
        gets your choice.
        scanf("%c", &choice);
        getchar();  //remove the newline char from the keyboard buffer
        takes action based on your choice (including quit the program)
    
        if(choice=='A') {
           //logic to handle choice A, in here    
        }
        else if(choice=='V') {
          logic for choice V
    
    
        }
      //etc. for all the choices on the menu
    
      }while (choice != 'Q')

    hi guys... sorry i was busy with my final exams... and still have to submit my project

    someone helped me for my project ... but still errors

    this s what i have written so far

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    void addcar(),deletecar(),viewcar(),rate(),viewrental(),quit();
    char name,address,model,plate,licence,date1,date2;
    int ic,contact,day;
    float price;
    
    main()
    {
    char select;

    Oh my goodness... so many problems!
    First off: INDENT. Don't do ANYTHING else until you've indented.

    >>void addcar(),deletecar(),viewcar(),rate(),viewrental() ,quit();
    What is this?

    >>main()
    Where is the return type for main?

    >>char select;
    >>scanf("%s",&select);
    Why do you think this works?

    Why are you using goto?

    And choose a better thread title next time!

    Then you shouldn't be using the code.
