    Stop reposting what I posted... Post your *actual* code... lets see what you are doing wrong!
    Listen, punk, I HAVE been posting my *actual* code, I have even been posting edits I've made and telling you where I've been putting them. If you are not smart enough to understand what that means, go back to school. I have tried your code, I have looked at it over, and it DOES NOT WORK!!! And the other thing: exit(0) is not recognized in the compiler on its own! I do not know what YOU are using, but that's not the way it is! Are you using a different header? If not, where is that? Why do you not mention that in your post?? I ain't going to put up with being insulted and flamed by some cocky veteran who thinks everyone is up at his level. I am a COMPLETE NOOB to this. Do you think I'm going to get it all like YOU do? NO!

    Thanks for wasting my time and making yourself look like an ass in front of the world. It was a mistake for me to even sign up for this forum. Why the HELL are you even here if all you're going to do is insult people and call them liars just because the code you use and have no problem with doesn't work on someone else's machines? Go to hell.

             switch (getchar())	
                {
                   case '1':
                       pointsTotal();
                       break;
                   case '2':
                       pointsConference();
                       break;
                   case '3':
                       pointsTeam();
                       break;
    
                    case '4' :
                           printf("Peace Out....");
                           exit(0); 
                    case '\n' :
                            printf("Please enter a selection from the menu...");
                            break; 
                    
    
                    default:
                       printf("\nInvalid entry! Please try again!\n\n");
                       menu();
              }
    
          }	
        return 0;
    }
    The case 4 exits the program.
    The \n has to be processed because you are actually entering 2 characters... the selection and the enter key.

    Yeah well... don't let the door hit yer backside on the way out...


    With that kind of temper, we don't need you here at all... You never once followed my examples or instructions... and the little matter of exit() could have been resolved by spending 10 seconds looking it up in your help files...

    There you go again using standard code and expecting it to run on every standard compliant C compiler. Really, Tater where do you get off?

    I know... sometimes I can be such an idealist...

    (Realizing that post #14 was the first time we saw his actual code, which was not my suggestion at all...)

    I still can't feagure out why he snapped so suddenly. Tater didn't say anything bad or insulting ... I guess when the real intensions of someone are unmasked, he becomes angry to defend himself... ( I should be a psychologic! )
    Devoted my life to programming...

    It's pretty obvious he was getting very frustrated, wasn't thinking clearly... and likely has a problem following instructions to begin with.

    Coders with that temperment don't last long... but I'm told they make excellent landscapers.
