Whenever I introduce int get_int() I get an error message: error: initializer element is not a compile-time constant int x = get_int()I have tried permutations of get_int(0 that have been suggested without success. What am I doing wrong? Example:

#include <cs50.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)

int x = get_int()

  • the first two lines are: #include <cs50.h> #include <stdio.h> Sorry that only "include" showed up in the original post

Simply put, the program isn't properly structured. There are no curly braces here to bracket the main() code. It should have the following structure:

#include <cs50.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
{
    // all of the code for main goes between these curly braces.
    int x = get_int()

}

BTW, if you compile this code, you'll get a new error - unused variable x. You'd need to do something with it to get around that warning/error. Maybe a printf statement?
