Edited 6 Years Ago by __avd: Added [code] tags. For easy readability, always wrap programming code within posts in [code] (code blocks).

The first question to ask is where do function prototypes belong? Not in main(). After that you should compare the prototype for the function list with the definition of it down below. They don't match. After that it's some minor adjustments once you decide whether you're passing the pointer or not.

>The first question to ask is where do function prototypes belong? Not in main().
Prototypes are not required to be at file scope. It's merely conventional because they usually reside in headers (which are usually placed at file scope) and used in multiple translation units. In the average case, prototypes at block scope would be duplicated in every block they're used, which would be tedious for all but the simplest of programs.

//help me i dont know what wrong with list function

There's absolutely nothing wrong with it. What's wrong is how it is called. Look at line 36, and ask yourself what is a type of library[count] .

Prototypes are not required to be at file scope.

Noted. I'd never seen it done that way, false assumption on my part. Thank you.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

The prototype doesn't match the definition, unless I'm missing something again. I do agree about the call being wrong.

Adding to what's been said above, GCC spotted a thing in the list() function, it said;

warning: too many arguments for format

That means that the printf(...) call there needs attention. There is a mismatch between the format string and the number of arguments you actually pass in.

Then you might consider dropping usage of fflush(stdin) altogether (as it might produce quite unexpected results), and perhaps replace gets() with e.g. fgets() to be on the safer side.

See ...
Why gets() is bad.
Why fflush(stdin) is bad.

Comments
Many fine points that deserved better than an anonymous -1 for your effort

case 2:
list(library[count],count);
break;


I think the call to the function should be


case 2:
list(library,count); or list(&library,count);
break;
