Withdrawn due to errors on my part.

For some reason this won't compile. This isn't the first time that something hasn't worked from this book so I suspect it's a tiny typo that is messing up the whole thing. Can someone explain to me why this doesn't compile? I'm just starting to deal with strings so I don't know how to call a function from within a string.

#include <stdio.h>

main ()

{ int str_number;

for (str_number = 0; str_number < 13; str_number++)
{
}
}

/*********************************************************/

int n;

{
static char *t[] =
{
"  -------------------------------------- \n",
" |            ++ MENU ++                |\n",
" |           ~~~~~~~~~~~~               |\n",
" |     (1) Edit Defaults                |\n",
" |     (2) Print Charge Sheet           |\n",
" |     (3) Print Log Sheet              |\n",
" |     (4) Bill Calculator              |\n",
" |     (q) Quit                         |\n",
" |                                      |\n",
" |                                      |\n",
" |     Please Enter Choice              |\n",
" |                                      |\n",
"  -------------------------------------- \n"
};
return (t[n]);
}



I get an error on line 15: char *menutext(n)

C:\Documents and Settings\Gary II\Desktop\cprog.c|15|error: conflicting types for 'menutext'|

I'm sure other people have their points too, but that was the first thing that cought my eye, and the compiler did say... that line was causing you the problem.
