One year of surgery? That looked just too serious. Good to see you back and there are many errors in your program.

You have not included the needed header files as well as missing semi-colon after printf

i will tell u a very nice book . name is Yashwanth k kanethker ... this will be very easy for u to learn conepts as well as implementing ur programs.... lot's of solved examples will be given for understanding and also tutorial too given...... PL. refer that book.......

in ur code u have left a semicolon ... ur code should be:
void main()

there are 3 parts in function:
a) Function prototype
b) Function calling
c) Function definition

since you have left a semicolon( after printf , the compiler had taken it as function Definition.......
run the above code and see , it will work properly......

thank u
