    why the compiler kept displaying
    In function `main':
    void value not ignored as it ought to be
    In function eg:'study'':
    syntax error before "char"
    At top level:
    syntax error before "price"
    In function `display':
    syntax error before "char"

    Maybe you should read your book on how functions work? A function that returns void ... returns nothing at all that can be assigned to a variable.

    }
    i wanted to print a book ordering receipt with this program.but i have this problem in capturing the name of the book and also its price to be displayed in display function.how to use the array actually? can someone teach me? then to total up the price..do i need to use non void to return the value to main and calculate it in the main program?

    don't use fflush(stdin)..it isn't meant to work on stdin. Will result in undefined behavior.
    You ended that sentence with a preposition...Bastard!

    > void display(float p,char books[][],price[]);
    The minor dimension of books cannot be empty.

    Something like
    void display(float p,char books[][SOME_SIZE],price[]);

    > display(books[][],price[]);
    To call a function, it is just the array name (no empty [ ] )
    Like so
    display(books,price);
    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.

    No idea, without seeing your latest code.

    It means your code has confused the compiler.

    My guess is that you haven't fully fixed the concerns pointed out in Salem's post (#5).
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.

    display() expects two values (a char and a float). When you call it, you are passing arrays.

    Are you actually trying to reason things out on your own? Or are you just posting here as soon as you get an error message without any thought? It strikes me - given the timing between your posts - that you are doing the latter - which means you are wasting your time and ours.

    Error messages from compilers may be cryptic, but they always include some hints (eg line numbers) about where the problems are. You will learn more by reasoning things out on your own - and become self sufficient.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
