Hi,
   1)Whenever I used to allocate memory by declaring char *
and using faralloc , or malloc , etc , I will get a error
"Can't convert void * to char *" because as you know it is declared as void * malloc or faralloc in alloc.h.
  2) Please tell me how to develop a project in c (step by step). Because I tried to develop but when I used to build .prj file it give "Type name expected"

You have to use a casting after malloc statement since malloc returns a void pointer

char *ptr;

prt=(char *)malloc (size);

Hi rbr,
                  It's Turbo C++ and OS is Windows NT 4.0
Here is the listing of .prj file
move  // driver program
menu(menu.h,keys.h)
ibm.obj
It is giving "Type name expected" for all i.e., move, menu(),ibm.obj
