    Talking Einstine calculator

    Hi I've learning to program for about the last 2 years. Any way i found a ZIP disk yesterday and on it was a program I wrote about a year ago, tell me what you think.

    Code:
    
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <math.h>

    Code:
     /*fuction to exit program*/
    int exit(){
    	 system("PAUSE");
    	 return 0;
          }
    
    ...
        exit();
        menu();
    }
    There are a few problems here:

    1) There is already a function called exit() in stdlib.h, so you shouldn't be making your own.

    2) The exit function does not exit the program. At least, yours doesn't. The real one does. Yours does nothing other than pause for a moment before 'menu' gets called recursively.

    3) You are calling menu() recursively.

    4) If your exit program did work correctly, the menu() call you have would never happen, and as such, would be unreachable code.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
