    Are you looking to work so you can learn or to work on a longer project? If the latter is the case, PM me, I don't want to advertise here, since I believe it is against the rules.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    An example
    online-judge.uva.es - PROBLEM SET ARCHIVE

    Problems range from the trivial to the "impossible".
    They have thousands to choose from, so it will keep you busy


    In general
    programming contests - Google Search
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
