I have got this question: Write function of f(x) that return the number of bits set to 1 in an unsigned integer.

So the outcome of the result will be sometime like f(5) = 2 cos [5 in binary is 101 and it got 2 '1s')

Here's my program:

#include <stdio.h>

int bitcount(unsigned x);

main()

{

int b;

int x;

for (b=0; x!=0; x >>=1)

if (x &01)

b++

return b;

}

And the error is "return b" >> **parse error before `return'
how should i ammend this? Please advise. Thanks.**
