    parse error before string constant

    Trying to do a simple program, well I thought it was going to be simple...

    It's meant to create a muliplication table, dimensions are the user's discretion.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(void)
    {
       int a,b,n;
       printf("Multiplication Table size? - ");
       scanf(" %d",&n);
       printf("  |");
       for(a=2;a<=n,a++) {
          printf("  %d",a);
       }
       printf("\n==");
       for(a=2;a<=n,a++) {
          printf("====");
       }
       printf(" \n");
       for(a=2;a<=n;a++) {
          printf("%d |",a);
          for(b=1;b<=n;b++) {
             printf(" %d",a*b);
          }
          printf(" \n");
       }
       return 0;
    }

    You had a couple ',' instead of ';' in two of your for loops.

Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods."
