    i find thid error with the gcc only.
    i understand that there must be some value in the buffer that is why the program does not stop to scanf the value.
    1. can anyone tell how do we check the value in the buffer.
    2. how about clearing the buffer before the scanf statement. if u think this is a good idea then, please can anyone let me know how to clear the buffer.
    U get What U pay for.

    By debugging your program. Single step through it and put some watches on your variables.

    That should not make any difference. The buffer will stay the same (size wise). Your overflowing the buffer somewhere. somehow. The only way to find out is to debug your program.
