    a little addition

    the book shows it like this:
    Enter days in the month: 31
    enter starting day(1=Sun, 7+Sat): 3
    1 2 3 4 5
    6 7 8 9 10 11
    ...

    Try adding this right after the scanf() to get the starting day of the month:

    Code:
    for ( i=0; i<(day-1); i++ )
      printf("   "); /* That's three spaces */
    Also, the code you posted won't compile. You're missing the '#' before the preprocessor include, and a '}' to close out main().

    While you're at it, declare main() to return type int.
