    Newbie trying to work w/ KR book!?!

    I'm trying to self teach C by using KR book and Dev C++ 4.9 and am having two problems. 1) No output shown and I believe I'm missing something else. Anyone help me out?
    Thanx

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    /* print Fahrenheit-Celsius table for fahr = 0, 20, ..., 300 */
    main()
    {
         float fahr, celsius;
         float lower, upper, step;
    
         lower = 0;      /* lower limit of temperature scale */
         upper = 300;    /* upper limit */
         step = 20;      /* step size */
    
         fahr = lower;
         while (fahr <= upper) {
             celsius = (5.0/9.0) * (fahr-32.0);
             printf("%3.0f %6.1\n", fahr, celsius);
             fahr = fahr + step;
         }
    }

    More options are in here
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Or you can just run it from the command line and not have to worry about adding anything in there to pause it.
