I have the following code for C

int get_pyramid_steps(string prompt);

//Ask height
int main(void)
{
    int i = get_int("pick a number: ");
        printf("you said %i\n", i);
}
//if i < 1 or i > 8

int get_pyramid_steps(string prompt) 
{
    int j;
    do
    {
       j = get_int("%s", prompt);
    }
    while (j > 8 || j < 2);
    return j;

}

The end goal is to make the user continually "say pick a number" for any >2 and < 8 but the following seems to be ignored

int get_pyramid_steps(string prompt) 
    {
        int j;
        do
        {
           j = get_int("%s", prompt);
        }
        while (j > 8 || j < 2);
        return j;

    }

The problem is that the function get_pyramid_steps is never called by anything in main. It might as well not be there.
