But I have a few doubts(not much). So could you provide me any means of contacting you?
I’ll delighted if you can provide me so. 🙂

Saeed Alavi says:

When I want to enter characters as input I cannot type normal characters and my keyboard type weird characters!! I tried to change encoding to UTF8 but again it did not fixed. I also checked several encoding but none of them worked. I have this problem just for letters and numbers can print correctly.

int main()
char firstname[20];
char lastname[20];
int age;

printf(“What is your first name?”);
scanf(“%s”, firstname);

prinf(“what is your last name?”);
scanf(“%s”, lastname);

printf(“How old are you?”);
scanf(“%d”, &age);

printf(“%s %s is %d years old.”, firstname, lastname, age);

return 0;
