Hi Richard,
Sorry for not being attentive but I have been trying to find the book that you referred to in respect of "C" programming & I have finally sourced a copy albeit in PDF format but I have none-the-less found it, so I've got it now. Also I have been viewing a u-tube video which I have downloaded from here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJgsSFOSQv0[^]
Only because I am the type of person if I can see it visually I tend to retain the info a bit better as I am not the sharpest tool in the toolbox if you know what I mean.
The narrator in the video mentions code::blocks which comes with IDE text editor & compiler to run the programs I selected the portable version with mingw to get started I will install tommorrow & give test run I have also been listening to some of the examples on the utube video. I may be able to break my code sample down into say 3 stages and run the code in Code::Blocks to check if the code is somewhere near possibly (Test-running)?

When you refer to the goto statements as being very bad practice in modern programming the only reason I opted to use these was because batch scripting is familair ground to me & Batch uses goto :labels therein quite a lot. Also one of the web-sites stated that goto statements are bad because of the dangers of spaghetti code, however they went onto say that if used sparingly & in the case of flag usage e.g. & only confined to purely isolated cases (like flags -X) they were, (although frowned upon) were permissable.
If I could use them until I acquire the necessary alternative skillset would it be okay for now given my obvious limitations. I could then interchange the new code with the goto code at a later date or is there another reason which I am missing here that I should not be using them, like they will not compile etc?
I will also attempt to amend the 1st post code with amended curly brackets.

Best Regards
