    beats me, compiled and ran your program okay.

    since it is a warning only, run your program and then compile again.
    hoping to be certified (programming in c)
    here's the news - I'm officially certified.

    If you are interested in knowing what the warning meant, post the warning message along with the name and version of your compiler.

    Ah, this is easy to fix. Open up your favorite text editor/IDE and go to the last line of your code. Go to the end of that line and press enter. Save and recompile.

    If you're curious about the warning, the C standard requires that all source files end in a newline. Generally, it's no big deal and most compilers will just spit out the warning and continue translation, but it's possible in theory that a compiler could reject the program just on this basis.
