    Public Apoligy

    Im sorry for my last posts it got kind of out of control.Next time i'll try and have a better attitude and i will use code tags. By the way if u dont mind telling me why u return 0 in int main instead of some other number.


    so lets start off a new level

    I haven't been around lately, for the past couple weeks, so I don't know what happened in your previous threads, and I don't feel like searching..

    I'll take it this is a sincere public apology.

    With that said, to answer your question, return 0; is not needed at the end of main; however, it is good practice to type it in, and if not placed will be returned by the program. it means successful execution.

    you return 0; for sucess, or return (somethingotherthanzero) for failure. Just...convention.
    Away.

    Being picky... it's not "somethingotherthanzero" according to the standard. Your statement assumes that a return of 9999 might be valid, which in a lot of cases it won't be.
    Code:
    control is returned to the host environment. If status is zero or EXIT_SUCCESS, an
    implementation defined form of the status successful termination is returned. 
    If status is EXIT_FAILURE, an implementation defined form of 
    the status unsuccessful termination is returned.
    Otherwise the status returned is implementation defined.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
