    how does http: working in C program

    Hi Guys,

    i just found that the word http: is working fine in my C Program without giving any error.

    writing a program for your reference.
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h> 
    #include<conio.h> 
    void main()
    {
    http:
    clrscr();
    printf("http is working fine");
    getch();
    }
    Please do suggest why this is not giving any error.

    First of all main should be int main(void) and return 0 at the end.

    Secondly, I suspect that is a label for a goto statement, it is not a keyword of the language.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    Yep... that's what it is... a label.

    Now, lets put in int *ftp as a variable... You could write...
    Code:
    if (!ftp)
      goto http;
