    Unhappy menu problem!!! need U R G E N T help!!!

    i want to make a menu and i am almost finished typing it. but i don't know how to return to the main menu again after an option is chosen.

    my program:

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void main_menu( );
    
     int main( )
    {
      
    
    main_menu();
    
      return 0;
    
    } 
    
    
    
    
    void main_menu()
    { int selection;
      
      printf( "*** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***\n" );  
      printf( "** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * **\n" );  
      printf( "* *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** *\n" );  
      printf( " ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** \n" );
      printf( "****          Welcome to MY PROGRM!       ****\n" );
      printf( " ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** \n" );
      printf( "* *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** *\n" );
      printf( "** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * **\n" );
      printf( "*** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***\n\n" );
              
      printf(" What is you name?");
      scanf("&#37;s");
      
                   
             printf("\nPlease choose one of the options below and enter its number: \n\n");
             printf(" 1) Count the total number of words\n");
             printf(" 2) Count the total number of vowels\n");
             printf(" 3) Count the total number of capital letters\n");
             printf(" 4) Reverse the text inputted\n");
             printf(" 5) Capitalize the first letters and lowercase other letters\n");
             printf(" 6) Exit\n\n");
    
      printf("Choose an option: ");
      scanf("%d", &selection);
     
      switch(selection){
        case 1:
          {
    
           /*function 1*/
          
    }
          break;
          
        case 2:
          {
    	
          /*function 2*/
    
    	
    }
          break;
        case 3:
          {
    
           /*function 3*/
            
    }
    
          break;
        case 4:
          {
    	
           /*function 4*/
    	
    }
          break;
        case 5:
          {
     
           /*function 5*/
    	
    }
    
          break;
        case 6:
          {
           int ch;
           fflush(stdin);
    	do
    	{
    	   puts("\nAre you sure you want to quit ? (Y/N)\n");
    	   ch = getc(stdin);
    	   if (ch == 'y')
    	{
    	    printf("\nThank you for using ! Byebye!\n");
    	    exit(0);
    	}
    	    else if (ch == 'n')
    	{
    	    puts("\nReturning to main menu...\n\n");
             
                main_menu();
    
                return ;
    	
    	}
    	}while(ch != 'n' || ch != 'y');
    	break;
    }
          break;
          default: 
          printf("\nInvalid selection! Program will end automatically.\n");
          break;
          
      }
    
    }
    i want to know how i can return to the main menu again without showing the following text
    Code:
     printf( "*** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***\n" );  
      printf( "** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * **\n" );  
      printf( "* *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** *\n" );  
      printf( " ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** \n" );
      printf( "****          Welcome to MY PROGRM!       ****\n" );
      printf( " ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** \n" );
      printf( "* *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** *\n" );
      printf( "** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * **\n" );
      printf( "*** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***\n\n" );
              
      printf(" What is you name?");
    but directly show the following part to the user.
    Code:
     printf("\nPlease choose one of the options below and enter its number: \n\n");
             printf(" 1) Count the total number of words\n");
             printf(" 2) Count the total number of vowels\n");
             printf(" 3) Count the total number of capital letters\n");
             printf(" 4) Reverse the text inputted\n");
             printf(" 5) Capitalize the first letters and lowercase other letters\n");
             printf(" 6) Exit\n\n");
    
      printf("Choose an option: ");

    You need a loop of some sort. A while, for or do-while loop.

    > scanf("&#37;s");
    Where does the answer go here?
    Which compiler are you using? If it's a gcc port, then add "-Wall" to your command line options.

    > fflush(stdin);
    Another see the FAQ question. This is undefined.

    Perhaps adding two more functions would help.
    banner(), which prints that starry mass at the top of the page
    options(), which prints all the individual choices which are possible.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Well there's your problem!
    Miracle C is a PoS.

    Anything on this list should help you enormously.

    You can add a loop of the appropriate kind to your code.

    Whilst the compiler may not be the best [I have never used it - so I can't say whether it's completely useless or just somewhat less than ideal], you certainly shoule be able to compile and run a simple project in it - and you're not saying "the code I've written can't be compiled", but "I don't know how to do this", and you have been given a few things that you can do to improve your code.

    Well then you're sunk if you're stuck with that compiler, because it will fail miserably to compile even some basic programs which are correct, no matter what you do.

    I know this is a highly disliked way of doing it, but you can use a goto statement in the worst case.

    No, don't do that when a loop or recursion can easily be applied (recursion does not apply here, though). A loop is the best alternative.

    I think that last word may be a little different, depending on Salem's mood.

    I think it should describe what the abbrevation meant fair enough, though.
