Adding 2 functions to a C Program

+11 votes
asked Nov 8 by Jon Tompkins (220 points)

Hello,

   I need to add two functions to this C Program here: https://onlinegdb.com/uqjIhF5AH

I am trying to do it, but can't get it to work. I want to add the following functions:

int main()
{
    float celsius, fahrenheit;
 
    printf("Please Enter the temperature in Fahrenheit: \n");
    scanf("%f", &fahrenheit);
 
    // Convert the temperature from f to c formula
    celsius = (fahrenheit - 32) * 5 / 9;
    //celsius = 5 *(fahrenheit - 32) / 9;
    //celsius =(fahrenheit-32) * 0.55556;

printf("\n %.2f Fahrenheit = %.2f Celsius", fahrenheit, celsius);
 
    return 0;
}

2nd Function:

int main()
{
  printf("\n Hello World");
  return 0;
}
Thank you for the help.
Jon

You cannot have more than one main() function (actually, you cannot have more than 1 function with the same name) in a C program.

The main() function is the entry point of your application. Create new functions and put the functionality there. E.g.:

int MyFunction1()
{
    ...
    return 42;
}

void MyFunction2(int value)
{
    ...
}

int main()
{
    int number = MyFunction1();
    MyFunction2(number);
    return 0;
}

Just rename your main() to Main() and _main() and add these to your program and call them accordingly. In C, function names are case sensitive and therefore main and Main would be different, since in C you can use only one main function.
