    If you don't want to return a value then use the default of 0. But main must return an int (unless it's a freestanding implementation, but we've already established that if you aren't sure, you aren't freestanding).

    Newbies with old programming books... not covering standard c++ will surely... love. void main() but one who even visited this board frequently will surely be familier with Salem's Avatar.

    What does the operating system do when it receives a return value other than zero? I.e. what would it do differently if it had received a zero from the terminating program.

    That aside I did vote "void main" to be an ass. int main is actually standard.
    i believe game boy advance is a freestanding implementation, yes?
