    Post Programming Help

    So i'm basically trying to build a C code for this assignment. (Ignore the red text that's crossed out and any other question that isn't about programming)
    Intro, Intro (beginning of A), A, B, B ii

    Also in hyperlink A i know it says python but forget about that too, everything is supposed to be in C. I can't get past Section A though as my program won't run. It looks like this. Any suggestions?

    Learn the difference between == and = when used in C code.

    Oh, and next time, post actual code between [code][/code] tags.

    Just dumping a bunch of urls to screen shots doesn't make a good experience.
    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.

    Why haven't you just named the variables "guestNumber", "length", "isSmoker", "CreditCardNumber"?

    That way your code will be self documenting.

    If you don't want to do that, at least change "l" - calling a variable "l" is a very bad idea because it looks like a "1"

    What is going on here...
    printf("Please Enter Name\n");
    Is there more to that scanf?

    Also, scanf needs the address of your variable - You do that by putting a "&" in front of it
    scanf("%d", &length);
    There are lots of problems with getting strings (i.e. the name) from the user - You just need to look into the history of the "gets" function in the C language.

    The best way is to use a function called "fgets". I suggest that you have a look around for tutorials like this:

    Good luck
