    i give up

    This is a program im trying to get to work for my test :-(

    Code:
      #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main (void)
     
     {  
    
     float value1; 
     
    float accumulator = 0;  
     
    char operator;   
    
     
    
    
    
    printf ("\t\tCalulator\n");  
     
    printf ("\t\t---------\n");   
    
    
    printf("Type in your test\n"); 
    
    scanf("%f %c", &value1, &operator);    
     
    
    do
    {
    
    
    switch (operator) 
    
      {
     
     case 'S':      
     
    accumulator = value1;   
     
    printf("%.3f\n", value1);     
    
     break;        
    
    
    
     case 's':       
    
     accumulator = value1;     
     
    printf("%.3f\n", value1);      
     
    break;        
    
    
    
     case '+':      
    
     accumulator += value1;      
    
     printf("%.3f\n", accumulator);       
     
    break;       
    
     
    
     case '-':       
    
     accumulator = accumulator - value1;      
    
     printf("%.3f\n", accumulator);       
     
    break;        
    
    
    
    case '/':      
    
    accumulator = accumulator / value1;      
     
    printf("%.3f\n", accumulator);       
     
    break;       
    
     
    
    case '*':       
    
     accumulator = accumulator * value1;       
    
    printf("%.3f\n", accumulator);                 
    
    break;        
    
    
    
     case 'E':        
    
     printf("End of Tests\n");       
     
    break;        
    
    
    
     case 'e':      
     
    printf("End of Tests\n");       
     
    break;             
    
    
    
     default:

    Learn to indent your code correctly and the missing brace should be obvious.

    Do what the rest of us do... address each error one at a time, recomiple and try again, until they're all gone...

    Some things that will help you...
    Turn on line numbering in your IDE... the error messages contain line numbers.
    If you don't have it get an IDE that does brace matching, get one... it will show you any mismatches.
    Especially don't get all flustered because of compile errors. I'm sure we all deal with them all the time.

    Indent your code and you will see you are not closing both the switch and the do statement.
    Try to do some work or fail!
