Hi Richard Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
Thanks for sharing your experience & advice it has ironed out quite a few wrinkles- I will Kinda work last to the first of your quotes or in reverse order.

If you do it properly in the first place you will find there is no need for them. Whilst they will always compile they really are best avoided, especially as a new boy.

I see, what about if I used a "if" "else" statement like e.g. if the user types or stipulates the "-x" flag with "ECO" then "ECO" removes the CRLF/EOL, "else" the user fails to input "-x" flag then "ECO" just echo's one line of text to the screen in the same fashion the normal echo statement does? If this is a suitable alternative I will work on amending the code?

I would recommend Visual Studio 2019 from Microsoft. It's free and runs natively, so does not require mingw.

I have downloaded the community edition of Visual Studio 2019 it seems to be the free version, will I need additional software to convert code (ECO.h) to EXE/COM once I have corrected all my errors? and last but not least... (Edit) Oop's It does not seem I will be able to use the 2019 version as it is asking for Dot net vers 4.6 which is a bridge too far for winXPSP3 I think Vers 4.0 was the last for XP I will look for earlier vers compatable with XP.

Amazon has it The C Programming Language (2nd Edition): Amazon.co.uk: Kernighan, Brian, Ritchie, Dennis: 8601410794231: Books[^].

It's okay I have managed to get hold of a copy "The C Programming Language" & will inwardly digest & will be good for referencing study.

Best Regards
David
