I don't know why when I compile the program, it has the error in the " money ", this program I copied from text book to practice, so I am confused now,
Please explain me more about the function and argument,... thank you

Well in your function declaration float computeNet (money); money is not a recognized datattype. Its probably your variable name.

You probably want float computeNet (float money);

Thanks for answering me, this is what I have done, when I compiled the program, it said that it done with error. And the program can not run

Also it is better to use int main(int argc , char *argv) ;
Copying code from text book does not compile most of the time since the author leaves you to complete the program.

Just a minor correction to Shark's post

int main(int argc, char *argv[]){

  return 0;
}

Its char *argv[] or char** argv[];

You need to post your compile errors, and read your code carefully !! There are mistakes like

float compueGross
       (float hours,float rate)
       
       {

I don't see a function called "compueGross" anywhere, do you ?
