Chose exit option to quit the program

How would I enter in a exit option to quit this program? Thanks

/*Select a currency conversion type by code number 8/11/04*/
#include <stdio.h>

You already have one:

case '0':
printf("exiting...\n");

I was trying to make it say that the program was exiting if a number was not chosen.  Is that an option? Thanks

Just use

/*Select a currency conversion type by code number 8/11/04*/
#include <stdio.h>                            
int main(void)
{

int EUR,GBP,JPY,CAD,RUR,US;  
float fCAD,fEUR,fGBP,fJPY,fRUR,fUS;
char option;
  EUR=1;
  GBP=2;
  JPY=3;
  CAD=4;
  RUR=5;

   
  fEUR=0.829643f;              
  fGBP=0.548242f;
  fJPY=110.631f;
  fCAD=1.31751f;
  fRUR=29.1800f;                                                                                  
   fUS=1.00f;
  printf("Select a currency type\n\n");
  printf("1=European Euro 2=United Kingdom Pound 3=Japanese Yens 4=Canadian Dollars 5=Russian Rubles\n");
  printf("Select the 4=Canadian Dollars currency type\n");
  printf("Enter 0 to exit\n\n");

while(1){

printf("Enter your choice:");

option=getch();
switch(option)
{
case '1':
printf("The selected currency type is the European Euro of %f equivalent to %f US  Dollar\n",fEUR,fUS);
break;
case '2':
printf("The selected currency type is the United Kingdom Pound of %f equivalent to %f US  Dollar\n",fGBP,fUS);
break;
case'3':
printf("The selected currency type is the Japanese Yens of %f equivalent to %f US  Dollar\n",fJPY,fUS);
break;
case'4':

Oh! I should have known that. Thanks New question :-) I am trying to get this to print out all dollar signs in a row of  6 and a column of 10. I am missing something? I think that it is line 10? Thanks  

 #include <stdio.h>
#define Rows 6
#define CHARS 10
int main (void)
{
int row;
char ch;
for(row=0;row<Rows;row++)
{
for(ch = '&';ch)
printf("%c",ch);
printf("\n");
}
getch();
return 0;                          
}

RebeccaFuscoAuthor Commented:
I got a little further as to a few mistakes but am still having a problem :-( Thanks

#include <stdio.h>
#define Rows 6
#define CHARS 10
int main (void)
{
int row;
char ch;
for(row=0;row<Rows;row++)
{
for(ch = '$';lt('$'+CHARS);ch++)
printf("%c",ch);
printf("\n");
}
getch();
return 0;                          
}          
0
 
jkrCommented:
That should be more like

 #include <stdio.h>
#define Rows 6
#define CHARS 10
int main (void)
{
int row;
int ch;
for(row=0;row<Rows;row++)
{
for(ch = 0;ch < CHARS;ch++)
printf("$");
printf("\n");
}
getch();
return 0;                          
}          
0
 
RebeccaFuscoAuthor Commented:
So my mistake was in the inner loop. To just print a continous item ch can  be set at 0 and CHARS is set to print out under 10 rows? Thanks

(ch = 0;ch < CHARS;ch++)
