    newbie with string question

    I am trying to write a program that accepts input from the keyboard which includes floating poit numbers,character and integers. The value of each shoykd be stored with variable names and the program will call for function that assembles a string using puts() in main after the function has completed.
    I am getting 3 errors= combine functions does not have 5 parameters and syntax error &, and function header, Please help!!!!

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    void combine (char c, int num, floatnum);
    int main()
    char strng1[80],strng2[100];
    int num;
    char c;
    printf("enter a string:");
    printf("enter an integer number:");
    scanf("%d", &num);
    printf("enter a character:");
    scanf("%c", &c);
    printf("enter a floating point:");
    combine (strng1, strng2, &num, floatnum, &c );
    printf("A string containing all inputs is:");
    return 0;
    void combine(char c,char *dest, int num,floatnum)
    sprintf(dest,"%c%d%1f",source, floatnum);
    return 0;

    void combine (char c, int num, floatnum);

    This declaration is wrong. What you really want is :
    void combine (char c, char* dest, int num, floatnum);


    What the heck is a floatnum ?

    Fix those problems. Then tell me what's wrong.

    I've got a better idea: Stop spamming the forum!

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
