    codeblocks gives me strange compiled messages...

    So, after I code something on codeblocks for C. The window that comes up always differs from one another. So, if I run it once, it will look different from when I run it the second time. How do I fix this?

    What I mean is that after pressing compile and run. The window that comes up(the black one) is different after each time I close it and open it up again. Does that make more sense?

    No it doesn't.

    Different how?
    Different position on screen - well, that's windows for you.
    Different contents - well, that's your program.
    Different termination message - maybe your program, if it says anything other than exit status 0.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    In addition to what Salem said, look at the title of your thread and your message. What does "codeblocks gives me strange compiled messages..." have to do with what you wrote in the message? I can't decipher it

    Well it seems to me that your attempt to read the "last name initial" failed, because you used "%c" as the format.

    Try instead a leading space in the format.
    Code:
    char initial;
    printf("Enter initial");
    scanf(" %c", &initial); /* space is important! */
    Next time, post your CODE.
    Not vague "the screen is different"

    Oh, and the last 2 lines are just code blocks reporting on whether your program was successful (that's the process returned 0 bit), and the execution time is well what it is - how long the program ran for.

    Space is important? I read that when writing C it doesn't matter if you use space or not because C can read it anyhow.

    In printf and scanf format strings it is.
