    return error

    i have the following codes in C language in linux:
    the problem with me is that when i call readFile function...it checks for some if statement and calls notexist function ......after the notexist function completes its operation it does not return to readFile function and print "back here"....can anyone suggest my mistake


    int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
    ....
    ....
    ....
    if (strcmp(msg,lm)==0)
    {
    readFile(w);
    }
    }
    return 0;
    }


    notexist(char *me)
    {
    ....
    ....
    ....
    return(1) ;
    }

    void readFile(char *file)
    {
    ....
    ....
    ....
    if ( )
    {
    notexist(file);
    printf("back here");
    }

    return;
    }

    Not a chance - you've edited your code so that it no longer compiles (nor does it have code tags)

    return

    the reason i edited my code is that my code uses socket programming and i am stuck in the part that my messages are not refreshed each time i send them so i wanted to use function and return statements
