    C Compiling error

    I am using a GCC compiler and getting the following errors:

    I have counted all my
    Code:
    { and }
    to ensure there was the same number but still am stumped. thanks in advance all!

    Please provide all of the compiler errors. Copy-paste them exactly, including line numbers. It also wouldn't hurt if you provided the exact command you used to compile. E.g.
    Code:
    $ gcc -Wall -g -std=c99 -pedantic  -lm -lpthread -lefence  fifo.c   -o fifo
    fifo.c: In function ‘main’:
    fifo.c:12: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘clrscr’
    fifo.c:58: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘exit’
    fifo.c:58: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘exit’
    /tmp/cc3srhKe.o: In function `main':
    /home/tyco/sandbox/cprogramming/fifo.c:12: undefined reference to `clrscr'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [fifo] Error 1

    Hmm...I don't get any such error, as you can see from the output I provided in post #3. Also, I think your line numbers in what you posted are a bit different from the code you posted.

    Are lines 57-58 in your program the following two?
    Code:
    printf("\n\n\tDo u want to continue IF YES PRESS 1\n\n\tIF NO PRESS 0 : ");
    scanf("%d", &YN);
    Look for a missing " somewhere (an editor that provides syntax highlighting is indespensible for things like this). Alternatively, copy-paste the code form the forum here into your editor, save the file and try recompiling. The code here seems to be fine (except for using the non-standard clrscr, and you need to #include <stdlib.h> if you want to use the exit function).

    Those are the two lines my compiler is counting as 57 and 58

    OK now i have C-Free to test (which is WAY nicer than darn school way) but i am getting a 'clrscr" was not declared in this scope. I have added:
    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h> 
    #include <conio.h>

    got it! Took out the <conio.h> and put in:
    system("cls"); where the clrscr was
