Hello Leif,

You get the warning because you haven't provided a complete prototype.  The 
compiler doesn't know what parameters are expected because you haven't told 
it.  It will assume void parameters and an int return value but the warning is 
generated because you weren't explicit.

void f(void); 

will shut it up.  As I recall this is the difference between ANSI C and the 
earlier kind.  I think there is something in the C Programmer's Guide about 
this but it's too late at night to look it up now.

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
