    Question Returning to Bash

    Code:
    	printf( "Enter the number of gallons used, (-1 to end): " );
    	scanf( "%f", &gallons );
    	
    	if ( gallons == -1 )
    		printf( "No miles or gallons were entered\n" );
    	else if ( gallons != -1 )
    		printf( "Enter the number of miles driven: " );
    		scanf( "%f", &miles );
    i am having trouble ending these statements, when i enter -1 i want to return the message as stated but it end and return to the bash shell. What can i do? i tried adding return 0, break, etc.. it still wont work.
    I have a 'while' statement later on but this condition stated here is only when the user inputs no data at the very beginning.

    THANKS
