    Novice question.. please help.

    Im still new into C programming, and I have a quick question:

    How do you make a kind of subprogram within a program? No, not really a program but more like sequence of commands so I woudn't have to repeatedly declare it again and again?

    If my question is too confusing to understand (sorry 'bout that ), what Im talking about is C's version of Pascal's procedure.

    It's called a function in C.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void foo(void) //a function!
    {
       printf("Hello");
    }
    
    int main(void)
    {
       foo();
       return 0;
    }
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
