looked a little closer at the stuff.  so, (best teacher's voice) "let the lesson
begin".  :-)

in C, as in C++, the compiler must "know" (from a prototype), or "have seen", a
function _before_ it can be used.  so the error messages will go away if you
re-order the functions.

conventionally, you read a c/c++ source from the bottom of the file (ie 'main'
in most cases) upwards, and programming follows that -- if you call some
function from main, it must have been actually provided or prototyped "above".
