a.c:34:17: error: label ‘key’ used but not defined
make: *** [Makefile:4: run] Error 1

shell returned 2

What I have tried:

I got many errors solved them the key,value are declared but showing label not found error

Well, this wins the prize for the least readable code I've seen today!

I'm not sure whether it's your code, or whether the site has messed up the formatting somehow. But there seem to be a lot of missing line breaks, meaning things are squashed onto single lines when they shouldn't be.

The compiler doesn't care, but anyone else trying to read your code does!

Don't call functions the same name as keywords - even if you use use an unpper case character to distinguish them to the compiler, it makes a human beings job a lot, lot harder - in fact, most of that code makes it hard to read, from the poor indentation to the variable name schoise, via pretty much everything else inbetween...

C has two operators you use ampersands: "&" - the 'address of' operator, and "&&" - the logical AND operator.

You're trying to use the later when you shouldn't: the name of an array is a pointer to the first element so you shouldn't need to take the address of the array at all.

void PrintMyArray(int arr[][3])
    for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
        for (int j = 0; j < 3; j++)
            printf("%u ", arr[i][j]);
int main()
    int data[3][3] = {{1, 2, 3}, {11, 12, 13}, {21, 22, 23}};
    return 0;

There are three ways && can be used:

1) As a logical operator:
if (something && something_else)

2) As a "label value" operator, which takes the address of the specified label and stores it in a pointer:
Labels as Values (Using the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC))[^]

3) In C++ 11, as an "rvalue reference" operator:
C++ rvalue references and move semantics for beginners - Internal Pointers[^]

Your code is using option 2 - the "label value" operator. Since you haven't defined labels called key or value, it gives you the error mentioned in your question.

Sorry I did not understand your post
I did not understand what are labels.
you can see both key and value which are multidimensional array.
I tried to fit according to compiler said.

Labels are used with the (not recommended) goto statement:
goto statement -[^]

Your code is trying to take the address of a label which has not been defined, when you actually want to take a pointer to a pointer to the variable which you have defined.
