    Pedantic error

    Code:
    int main(void) /*Main function*/{
        label(); /*Call display function which shows the function of program and name of programmer*/
        Car_t fleet[FLEETSZ]; /*Declaring the fleet array */
        initializeArray(fleet); /*Calling the fleet initialization function*/
        int option = 0;
        while(option != 6) /*Displays the program menu*/
    43|error: ISO C90 forbids mixed declarations and code [-pedantic]|
    45|error: ISO C90 forbids mixed declarations and code [-pedantic]|

    Says the line 3 and 5 inside main function has some error. Dont know how to fix this. I need to use ansi c standard.

    Basically, your declarations must come first at the top of the function (or other code block):
    Code:
    int main(void) /*Main function*/{
        Car_t fleet[FLEETSZ]; /*Declaring the fleet array */
        int option = 0;
        label(); /*Call display function which shows the function of program and name of programmer*/
        initializeArray(fleet); /*Calling the fleet initialization function*/
        while(option != 6) /*Displays the program menu*/

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
