    Unhappy Please could someone help me with my 8-function calculator program?

    Hi C programmers,

    Can anyone help me with my 8-function calculator program? The 'do' loop creates problems (errors) in my program. I tried everything but to no success.

    Thank you.

    Geeth.

    The program is provided below

    do use_code_tags( source_code ); while( is_without_code_tags( source_code ) );

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    I take it you mean this while loop.
    >while (number1 != 'q');

    If I quoted this from your code:
    >float number1 = 9999.0 .......

    would you see what your problem is? What type of variable is number1? What are you comparing it to in the while test?

    And yes, please you code tags when posting code.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
