What's the error? And this looks like just a fragment of the program, as it has no main(). Maybe something else is needed?

yes, a perfectly C program must have a main() function.

Yeah but how do i write the main. I just dont seem to get it???

I am a first year student in c++ but maybe have you tried the create a Header file first with the following

#ifndef diction.h
#define diction.h

your Header file declarations
then add at the end
