Thanks sayeh, for the highly informative input...generally I would use int main ( ), but for the standard being set by my course supplier. I have been docked marks from assignments when I have not used void main ( ). So in the mean time I shall continue to use void main (). If I am fortunate enough to gain employment as a programmer, then I shall follow suit along with the department recommendations. Which will probably be int main ().
Salem, I read most of your posts on here, which I find highly informative. I have no doubt you have aided many of us on here on numerous occasions. I do not disagree with you. My main problem is that my course supplier stipulates the use of void main (); so if I post code that includes this then you know that I am conforming to a standard set not by myself. When I see something that doesnot conform to what have been taught then I have to find out why? Being a would be programmer, then this is not a bad thing, even if I am wrong I will probably say I am right until I find out categorically that this is not the case. Better this way than just accepting what people say. I have sent my tutor the web page, and await his reply with anticipation. Unfortunately before sayeh posted. I shall probably send that in reply to his reply.
