    Question Calling multiple functions

    I have spent countless hours on this and I am stuck.
    This program is currency conversion program. A user selects a currency then an amont anthe selects the currency to conver to.

    firstchoice() is the procedure the fisrt selection is made and in getchoice() the second selection is made.

    The amount thats enterd is fist converted to US and then to the currency.

    I cant get it to complie.

    Here is source Code
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <math.h>
    int getchoice(void);
    int firstchoice(void);
    int beginconv(void);
    int main(void)
    {

    #define EURO .926698 //conversion rate for Euro
    #define FRANC 6.07874 // conversion rate for France Franc
    #define YEN 120.300 // conversion rate for Japanese Yen
    #define D_MARC 1.81246 // conversion rate for Germnay Deutshce Marc
    #define POUND 0.619579 // conversion rate for UK pound

    /************************************************** ***
    1 US dollar = 0.926698 Euro
    1 US dollar = 6.07874 Franc

    printf("4. D_MArc\n");

    Hi, I don't have time to point out every single error, there are quite a few, but here's a start.

    - Your #define's should go outside of main.

    - You never defined US.

    This is way off
    Code:
     myVar1 = selection1(FRANC, EURO, POUND);
    myVar2 = selection2(FRANC, EURO, POUND);
    Im not sure what selection1 or selection2 are supposed to be in beginconv, and if im not sure neither is the compiler Your declaring them as variables in other functions and using them as functions.

    And this
    Code:
     if (scanf (choice <= '6') || (choice >= '1') );
    Thats not how you use scanf, also your comparing choice an integer to a character value. You can do this but its prolly not what you want in this situation.

    There is alot alot more errors but I don't have time to go through it all, most of them are pretty severe Goodluck.

    Thanks for your input, this is my first C class and I am trying to slove a problem.

    The styles that I have adopted are from text books and the internet. I guess this might be as result of different writting styles or standards.

    I have corrected some errors, it now complies but it hangs up after one selection is made.

    Thanks for your assistance it has been greatly appreciated.
    however i have a few issuees here
    1. printf(" %s Select a currency: \n", user_Name);
    does not work it displays funny characters
    2. Values are not passed to this command, 1 is always the output regardless of selection.

    here is the code



    /*
    * 1 US dollar = 0.926698 Euro

    You obviously did not read what Hammer sent to you, did you! Please click on his link and read what that post has to say.

    I threw this together in a couple minutes that I had to spare. It doesn't check for errors, so if you can use any part of it, you'd have to work on that. I only tried it with $200 USD.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    double convert(char choice, double us)
    {
       const double convert[] = {  0.926698,
                                   6.07874,
                                   120.300,
                                   1.81246,
                                   0.619579,
                                   1 };
       
       double result = 1.0f;
       
       switch(choice)
       {
          case '1': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
          
          case '2': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
          
          case '3': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
         
          case '4': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
          
          case '5': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
          
          case '6': result = us * convert[(choice-'0')-1];
                    break;
       }
       
       return result;
    }
     
    int main()
    {
       const char menu[] = "1> Euro\n"
                           "2> Franc\n"
                           "3> Yen\n"
                           "4> Deutsche Marc\n"
                           "5> Pound\n"
                           "6> US\n\n--> ";
       
       const char *codes[] = { "Euro", "Franc", "Yen",
                               "Deutsche Marc",
                               "Pound", "USD" };
                           
       double getUnit, usd;
       char user;
       
       printf("%s", menu);
       scanf("%c%*c", &user);
       
       printf("\nEnter US amount to convert: ");
       scanf("%lf%*c", &usd);
       
       getUnit = convert(user, usd);
       
       printf("\n%.2lf dollars US = %.2lf %s",
               usd, getUnit, codes[(user-'0')-1]);   
          
       return 0;
    }
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P
