    Entering specific data

    Ok newbie here. I got a question. I'm trying to write a program that reads a string from someone and gives an if-then-else result. Here's what I've done, can someone point out what I'm doing wrong?
    PHP Code:

    #include <stdio.h>

    void main(void)
    {
        
    char name;                //input variable
        
    char f;                //input variable
        
    char lname;                //input variable
        
    char mname;            //input variable

    printf ("What is your First Name?");

    f=getchar();
        if (
    f=="fantim") || (== "Fantim") || (== "FANTIM"))
        
    printf ("What is your middle name?");
            
    scanf ("%d", &mname);
            if ((
    mname == "mi") || (mname == "Mi") || (mname =="MI"))
            
    printf ("What is your last name?");
                
    scanf ("%d", &lname); 
    Of corse this isn't where the code stops, but this is where my problems are coming in.

    1) void main is not valid. Please check the FAQ for details
    2) You can't compare a single character to a string literal.
    3) Fix your indentation
