I'm trying to write a program to print a conversion table from 0 to 100 celsius (in intervals of 5) to fahrenheit in this format. I have the following but can't get the intervals to increase by 5.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
  float C=0,F;
  int i;
  printf("Celsius | Fahrenheit\n");
  printf("========|===========\n");
  for (i=0; i<=100; i=i+5)
  {
    F=9*C/5+32;
    printf("%5.0f   |%7.0f    \n",C,F);
    C=5;
  }
  return 0;
}

You've got i to increase by 5, do you want to do anything with i?
What do you want to increase by 5?

the variable C will always be assigned to 5 (in the for loop, u put C=5).

You can try this:

int main (void)
{
   float C,F;

   printf ("Cel   Fara\n");

   for (C=0.0; C < 100.0; C+=5.0)
   {
      F = 9.0*C/5.0 + 32.0;
      printf ("%5.0f | %7.0f \n",C,F);
   }
   return 0;
}
note that you are allowed to use float as the for loop directive.

I need celsius to increase by 5, so I get a table like:

Celsius | Fahrenheit
======|=========
    0       |     32
    5       |     ..
   10      |     ..
  100     |    212

Perfect! Thanks :) My confusion was with using i instead of C.

Preface I don't like visual development tools that are supposed to write a program for me. Even if it is Xcode and I can use Interface Builder. Yes, it is a perfect tool and has helped me a lot, mainly, in the beginning, when my programs were small…
This is a short and sweet, but (hopefully) to the point article. There seems to be some fundamental misunderstanding about the function prototype for the "main" function in C and C++, more specifically what type this function should return. I see so…
