    umm can someone help

    i keep getting an errer that says "c:\mydocu~1\bomb.c
    parse error before `{'" on this cource--->

    #include <stdio.h>

    void dropbomb(void);

    int main()
    {

    printf("press any key to dropbomb:");
    getchar();
    dropbomb();
    printf("yikes\n");

    }

    void drompbomb();

    int x;

    {
    for(x=0;x>15;x++)
    {
    printf("\nweee");

    }
    }

    You've got two prototypes - the 2nd one should be a function
    Code:
    void drompbomb() {
      int x;
      for(x=0;x<15;x++) // was >
      {
        printf("\nweee");
      }
    }

    i did it the same way you told me to do it and im still getting an errer. i sure you can bare with me cause it's my first time. thanx just in case ------>

    #include <stdio.h>

    void dropbomb(void);

    int main() {

    printf("press any key to dropbomb:");
    getchar();
    dropbomb();
    printf("yikes\n");
    }
    int drompbomb();{

    int x;
    for(x=0;x>15;x++)

    {
    printf("\nweee");

    }
    }

    now here is the errer again just in case "c:\mydocu~1\bomb.c
    parse error before `{'

    Unless I am missing something....there's no code to create sound in there

    Unless I am mistaken, the only sound available to you is the bell
    The method of use for which is
    Code:
    for(i = 0; i < 15; i ++)
       printf("phwee\a\a\a\a");
    notice the inclusion of " \a " which is the symbol for the bell.
    hoping to be certified (programming in c)
    here's the news - I'm officially certified.
