    Post Prototype Help please !

    Output:
    User input : "this is a test"
    Search character: "h"
    This program will inform the user that the text contains 1 h.
    The user will enter EXIT on the command line to terminate program ( while loop "exit" !=0)

    Function require:
    get_user_input() - will func gets() to get command line

    parse_command_line() - will prompt the user for the search character then search the command
    ** This func will call the func display_results()

    Display_results() - display string search.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    My program was working fine without these prototypes. But it's really confused me when I try to put all the func together. Please help me out. Thank you.

    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "conio.h"
    
    void get_user_input(char[80]);
    void parse_command_line(char[80]);
    int display_results(void);
    int _tmain(int argc, _TCHAR* argv[])
    {
    
    	char userInput[80],search[80];
    int count=0;
    int i=0;
    
    get_user_input(userInput);
    parse_command_line(search);
    display_results();
    
    
    getch();
    
    return 0;
    
    }
    
    void get_user_input(userInput);{
    
    
    printf("User Input \n");
    gets(userInput);
    }
    
    parse_command_line(search){
    printf("\n The search character is \n");
    gets(search);
    
    
    
    for (i=0;i<80;i++)
    		{
       if(userInput[i]==search[0])
       {
    	   count++; 
       }
    		}
    }
    int display_results(void){
    printf("The string contains %d ",count);
    }

    void get_user_input(userInput);{

    that doesnt look too healthy, and you will find it easier to fix problems if you sort out the messy formatting

    if this is requirement of your tutor - you need to find another one...

    Read FAQ why gets should not be used
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.
