    Check to see if the file stdlib.h is really there in the 'include' folder. And check for a probable typo in your code where you are including this file name.

    i checked for typos and used an exit(1);

    the code was

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>

    main()
    {

    //rest of code goes here

    exit(1);

    return 0;

    }


    AND IT DIDNT WORK

    the rest of the code is length but my errors came from the stdlib.h
    and it said exit was not a function...because of the stdlib.h not being valid

    So, what errors do you get if you compile something simple like this (paste them here):
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        exit (1);
        return 0;
    }
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
