I am new to this community and have joined recently. I am trying to run this program and on compiling it gives warning as "assignment from incompatible pointer type". I wanted to know why this happens that is the reason behind this warning?

Also Besides i need to use a debugger such as gdb to find out why the program is outputting the current output of x=1? And how do i provide a memory dump of the stack? Also in my opinion the program should have given output as x=0 but it gave output as x=1? So how do i modify the program so that it gives the output as x=0?

I am new to the C language and have plenty of doubts. Please reply at the earliest?
