    Calling A Funtion

    Can anyone see whats wrong with the following code its not running the displaymenu function its going striahgt over it I think

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int displaymenu ();
    
    
    int main ()
    {
       puts("BeforeMenu");
       displaymenu;
       puts("AfterMenu");
       return (0); 
    }
    
    
    
    int displaymenu ()
    {
       puts ("\n\tP System");
       puts ("\n\n\t1) Add Entry");
       puts ("\n\t2) Delete Entry");
       puts ("\n\t3) Find Entry");
       puts ("\n\t4) View List");
       puts ("\n\t5) Sort Entries");
       puts ("\n\n\ttQ) Quit");
       puts ("\n\n\t Enter Selection");
    
       return(0);

    What does it do when I just call displaymenu? Is displaymenu a pointer and displayermenu() a function call then?

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    Thanks I understand now, are there situations when you want to call a function by its pointer then? GCC wasnt giving me any warnings.
