    Segmentation Error

    Hello all!

    Back again this week with a brand new error (well for me at least anyways)

    The program below is meant to draw a rectangle using asterics, but we've been made to do it a pretty specific way. At the moment I'm getting a segmentation error but I have no idea why. Below is the code!

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    
    int main()
    {
            int width = 0;
            int height = 0;
    
            printf("Please enter a width and height seperated by a comma\n");
            scanf("%d,%d, &width, &height");
    
    
            while (width>0)
            {
                    printf("*");
                    width--;
            }
    }

    ok so got round my segmentation error!

    Here's the new bit of code

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
            int width = 0; 
            int height = 0;
    
            printf("Please enter a width and height seperated by a comma\n");
            scanf("%d,%d",&width,&height); 
    
    
            while (width>0)
            {
                    printf("*");
                    width--;
            }
    }

    FWIW.... int main(void) would also work.
