    How do I assign the value from a function to a variable?

    Hi! Im starting with C so sorry about my low knowledge of this. Like I said in the title, how do I assign the value from a function to a variable? I mean I have this function:
    Code:
    int EnteroAleatorio(){
    
    rand();
    return rand();
    }
    and I would like to assing the value of EnteroAleatorio to a variable in my main function, but when I try to do it and compile, I got the next error:
    non-lvalue in assignement
    Thanks for your tips and, sorry again about my low knowledge of C ^^

    Show us your main function, the one that resulted in that compile error.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
