    Termination

    How do I write a line in a program that will terminate the program if the user enters E?
    for example they will be doing a math problem and it should go like this:
    34
    *
    2
    +
    9
    /
    3
    E (this should end the program than output the answer)
    so i just wanna know how do the termination part. Thank you.

    Code:
    do {   /* Put the whole program in a do-while loop */
        char ch;  /* This can be whatever you want, the variable to hold your chosen character */
        .
        . /* Do your stuff */
        .
        ch = getchar();  /* Get the character from the user and assign it to ch */
    {
    while ( ch != 'E' || ch != 'e' );  /* If the character from the user is E or e, the loop will stop */
    printf( "%d", total );
    return 0; /* The program ends once the loop is exited */
    You get your character at the end of the loop so that you won't print it before the test.
