    Array from 1 to n

    I'm suppose to make and print an array (it's for a game) for selecting numbers from 1 to n. Like if the number entered is 6, then the numbers in the games are "1 2 3 4 5 6" They are only positive nos, so I can put 0 in the 1st array index so things can be easier to follow, so that 1 is in the 1st, 2 in the 2nd, and n in the nth. But when I use this code, I get that there is a ) missing in the printboard function.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <conio.h>
    int main(void) {
    void makeboard(int board[], int size);
    int board[101];
    int size;
    printf ("Enter size:-");
    scanf ("%d", &size);
    makeboard(board,size+1);
    printboard(board,size+1);
    return 0;
    }
    
    
    void makeboard(int board[], int size) {
    int i;
    for (i=0; i<=size; i++) board[0]=i;
    }
    
    void printboard (char board[], int size+1) {
    for (int i=0; i<=size+1; i++) {
    if (board[i]!=0) printf ("%d ", board[i]);}

    > for (int i=0
    This isn't valid C, its C++
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You have quite a few syntax errors and type mismatches. Compare this to what you had before:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void makeboard(int board[], int size);
    void printboard(int board[], int size);
    
    int main(void) {
      int board[101];
      int size;
      printf ("Enter size:-");
      scanf ("%d", &size);
      makeboard(board,size+1);
      printboard(board,size+1);
      return 0;
    }
    
    void makeboard(int board[], int size) {
      int i;
      for (i=0; i<size; i++) board[i]=i;
    }
    
    void printboard (int board[], int size) {
      int i;
      for (i=0; i<size; i++)
        if (board[i]!=0) printf ("%d ", board[i]);
    }
    My best code is written with the delete key.
