    I cant get it to open my shop()

    Im making a text based game and I was going to add in potions into my game. Instead of just adding in all the functions dealing with the potions, I wanted to make a small program that had just a shop() in it. In the shop(), you could buy a potion and it would take you to an addPotion(). But, even though it works in my main game, my smaller one wont open up the shop. And I cant seem to figure out why.

    This is the code to my main(), which runs a small intro(), and then a begin(). In the begin function you pick to create a character or quit. After doing the createChar(), it brings you back to main()(here u can pick Shop or quit). Then thats where you select the shop(). But instead of loading the shop(), it loads the main() again(where u can pick shop or quit)

    Code:
    int main(){
    
        srand(time(NULL));
        intro();
        Sleep(500);
                   while(strcmp(chr.name,"") == 0 ){
                   begin();
                   }
             while (1) {
             cout << "\n\n What do you want to do? \n\n";
             cout << "1. Shop\n";
             cout << "2. Quit\n\n";
             cin >> choice2;
             switch(choice2){
                    case 1:
                            void Shop();
                            break;
                    case 2:
                         exit(0);
                    default:
                            cout << "\n\n Wrong....\n\n";
                    }
             }
    }
    Ive tried to write it as many ways as I know, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone tell me why?

    Watch case sensitivity and post enough information to allow others to help you.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    I posted that because I thought it was enough. Sorry if im new to this place as well. You could have at least asked for more information, instead of stating what you stated.

    Ill figure it out on my own.

    Buh-bye and happy coding!

    [aside]Can anyone compile what was posted? Does anyone know if multiple source files were used? Were there errors? Compiler or linker?

    Does anyone know what choice2 is... how it is declared?

    Is it just me, or did I lose my clairvoyance?[/aside]

    hopefully, choice2 is an int.
    void Shop(); ...Can you do that there?
