Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide

This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Write a complete C program to perform Matrix operations such as Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Transpose according to the user’s choice. The program should display the following menu to the user for them to select one of the five options listed.

------------------
MAIN MENU
------------------
1. MATRIX ADDITION
2. MATRIX SUBTRACTION
3. MATRIX MLTIPLICATION
4. MATRIX TRANSPOSE
5. TO EXIT
---------------------------
Please enter your option <1/2/3/4/5>:

The program should ask the elements of the input matrix or matrices from the user once the required operation is selected. The program should produce a neat output showing both the input and the resultant matrix in matrix form. The program should not be terminated until the user selects the option number 5 (TO EXIT).

THIS IS THE PROGRAM I HAVE DONE.. URGENT PLEASE CORRECT FOR ME! THANKS A LOT!!!!

#include <stdio.h> /* This header file is for C language */
#include <stdlib.h> /* for the exit() function */

/*Function prototype*/
int matrix_add(int a[3][3],int b[3][3],int result[3][3]);
int matrix_subtract(int a[3][3],int b[3][3],int result[3][3]);
int matrix_multiply(int a[3][3],int b[3][3],int result[3][3]);
int matrix_transpose(int a[3][3], int result[3][3]);
int print_matrix(int c[3][3]);

int main()
{
int counter = 0; /* initialize counter */
int option;/*initialize options available*/
int a[3][3];

/*Print the input matrices & output*/
{
printf("\nMatrix 1:\n");
print_matrix(a);

printf("\nMatrix 2:\n");
print_matrix(b);

printf("\nResult:\n");

{
matrix_multiply(a,b,c);
}
else if (option==4)
{
matrix_transpose(a,c);
}
else
{
exit( 1 );
}

/*Get the input for two matrices*/
/*Suppose the option is transpose, the input is one matrice*/

/*Switch case for each operation*/
switch (matrix_operations)

{
case 1:/*addition function*/
{
printf("Enter elements of Matrix 1:\n");
scanf("%d",& int a[3][3]);
printf("Enter elements of Matrix 2:\n");

matrix_add(a,b,c)

Is there something that the program does wrong? Ah, I see, it does not compile.

Line 77: matrix_operations is not declared, not initialized and never used.
Line 48: you assign a value to counter, you don't compare it
Line 83/85: why do you use 'int' there?
Line 86: semicolon missing

And there are a couple of things more like your function definitions that seem to be inside the main function.

Did you ever try to compile this? Or are we doing your homework?
