Re: Please help. There is a Syntax error in line 17 and I don´t know why. :c 80 80

You can only get to line 17 if number is 1, so having a switch on number at line 17 is pointless. Did you mean number2 ?
The switch on line 15 has only one case - what's the point of that?
Line 18 is invalid - all the code inside a switch has to be in case blocks

Re: Please help. There is a Syntax error in line 17 and I don´t know why. :c 80 80

I think Drax from Guardians Of The Galaxy would say:

Why is line 17?

That is, it seems odd to place a switch() statement there.

Re: Please help. There is a Syntax error in line 17 and I don´t know why. :c 80 80

Line 5 has typo: arrg should be arg.
Why have 1 case on line 17? Just remove that.
You only need one case statement below it.
It is like this was entered in one hit instead of debugging as you went. This is not a good way to program - big bang.

Re: Please help. There is a Syntax error in line 17 and I don´t know why. :c 80 80

identical switch within switch is just wrong, and printing inside swtch ouside any case is not at all nice.

Re: Please help. There is a Syntax error in line 17 and I don´t know why. :c 80 80

The error is really on line 18, but it is reported on line 17. The switch statement must be followed by case clauses, each with a constant value for comparison. Line 18 is not a case clause, so the compiler reports that the switch statement is malformed. Also, individual cases clauses do not need to be enclosed in { curlly braces }.

The logic of putting one switch statement inside another, comparing the same value, is unclear to me; you should examine exactly what you intended to do here. Because the inner switch statement is inside a clause where the value is already determined to be 1, the first case will only ever be executed and everything else will be skipped.
