    sorry minor changes needed
    first UNcomment the welcome(); function
    second COmment the " printf("%d %d \n",r,c); " line in the function rand_mines();
    here the mine is taken as char '9' and printing the above would reveal the mine positions.

    hey, and you guys can try loops that will put the axis above the minefield so that its easier to insert teh coordinates. like

    1,2,3,4.....,11
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6.
    .
    .
    .

    11 just an improvement :)

    Code:
    // you can replace the code in the function printmatrix(); wit the following
    // to get the axis.
    
    void printmatrix(char msweep[][12],int r,char user_chart[12][12])
    {
        
    int i,j,k;    
     
     printf(" ");
     
    for(k=1;k<12;k++) 
     printf("%d ",k);
      
      printf("\n");
    
    
     for(i=1;i<r;i++)
      {
       printf("%d",i);
    
       for(j=1;j<12;j++) //printing 1 to 11    
        {
         printf("%c ",user_chart[i][j]);//to refer to mines use msweep[i][j]    
        }

    So I am a student from UAT and just wanted to throw in my 2 cents. I put in my ideas but I was still having a problem with the code adding another blank space when the user number is posted. See what you think!

    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>  // interger to pointer without cast PROBLEM....
    #include<stdlib.h> // SOLUTION :  whenever using string the data type  
    // of the array must be char
    
    void welcome();
    void rand_mines(char msweep[12][12]);
    void printmatrix(char msweep[12][12],int r,char user_chart[12][12]);
    int process(char msweep[12][12],int r,int c,char user_chart[12][12]);
    
    int main()
    
    {
        welcome();
        char msweep[12][12] = {{'0'}};      
        int i,r,c;   
        char user_chart[12][12] = {{'0'}};
        rand_mines(msweep);  
        printf("Where is your first guess?\n");
        printf("Enter your location between 1 - 11.\n");
        printf("Enter x variable\n");
        scanf("%d",&r);
        printf("Enter y variable\n");
        scanf("%d",&c);
        printmatrix(msweep,12,user_chart);  
        i = process(msweep,r,c,user_chart);
        while(i == 1)
