Hi, I'm new to C and am learning it for my software engineering course. I'm
trying to compile a basic array program;

#include <stdio.h>
main()
{
int a[10];
for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
{
a[i]=i;
}
printarr(a);
}

void printarr(int a[])
{
for(int i=0;i<10;i++)
{
printf("value in array %d\n",a[i]);
}
}

When I compile I get the output;

C:\dm\bin>dmc third.c
{
^
third.c(13) : Error: 'printarr' previously declared as something else
It was declared as: int C func(int *)
It is now declared: void C func(int *)
--- errorlevel 1

It works when I change void to int, however I thought that without a return
value void was used. The code is taken from C & Data Structures by P.S Deshpande
and O.G Kakde.

Thanks.
