Well. I just got started with using the language C on my new macintosh and I had some qestions. I was wondering, I read a few books and I saw that it had functiopn like randomize() main() ect... Now, my question is, can I make my own function like malaka() and say I want it to count. Is that possible? And if so, how would I define it. Would it look like

malaka()
{
printf("count from 0 to 10")
return 0;
}

or something. Also, I am very curious with this question. I have noticed that when I open a program, take microsoft excel for example, I notice someting that comes up before I use the program that has the excel logo, copyright, ect.... How can I do that using C? Thanks alot for your time

Hi,
      You sure can make your own function ( that's what programming is all about ).
      your exemple put "count from 0 to 10" on the screen
      it doesn't do the count, if you want to count, it would
      look like that

      malaka()
      { Int I;
          for( I = 0; i <=10 ; i++ )
             Printf("%d\n", i );
          return 0;
        }

      for you second question...
      you don't really need to know C ( you can use other                    langage ) for
      that  , you need more the I Inside Macintosh.
      
      I don't know how familiar you are with the mac
      programming, but if you want to do it,
      you will surely need some of the inside mac.
      ( depending of what you want to do )

      here is how we do it :
      
      first : you make a pict of what you want to
              show ( you could do it on the fly, but
            it would be complicated for nothing )
            
      second : you use the resource.
                 you can use ResEdit or some other.
              you can also make it by hand, but
                 you will need Inside Mac for that.
                 you will make a dialog with the pict
                 you want in it.      
      
      third  : in your programme,
                 you will call the resource and put
                it on the screen...


      there is other way to do this, but i think
      this is the easiest...

      if you want to do this, you will need the inside mac.

      hope this help...

Hi,

when you want to make a function of your own, you have to make a function prototype first, like this,



void malaka( void );



Write that line before your main function.

When you want to call it from main, write like this:



malaka();



Outside main(), the function should be written just like carrieb writes, except the first line. It should be like this:



void malaka( void )



I think that would work better.
