Dont declare functions inside of other functions (in this case inside main(), and when you call a function and need to pass it arguments, don't indicate the argument type, just the argument name or an objects address (if the function is expecting a pointer and what you have is an object).

So what's your question? I see nothing but a bunch of code in need of a few band aids, but no question.

wat does it mean by primary expression required before int

why not to declare functions inside main??? it is not a prob as far as i know , i have made a quite a few prog doing the same

In switch case u r declaring a prototype...it should be a function call there...from next time use code tags

....and instead of arguing with people in the forum u should accept ur mistakes....try learning things....in your previous posts u said u downloaded DEV....i don't think u r using that
Note: Everyone is not gonna post corrected codes for u here always

You're right, you can put function prototypes in a block. But then they're only visible to the end of the block.
