No there must have void main() for all programs.

Even I wrote already that this question was posted twice you give an answer. And the answer is wrong too.
Sure one can write a C programm without any main function. The only change is taht you can't execute such a program directly. But for linking, building libraries, unsing as an external module ... it can be used.

rbr is right. you can compile a C program without the main() function. however, you will defineitely give a linking error when you try to create an executible from it.
