Understanding functions: C Essential Training: 1 The Basics

Dan Gookin explains how functions work in the C language. C features functions as part of its standard library. The header files help with function prototyping. You can craft your own functions. Functions accept values in an argument list. Functions are typed by the data type value they return, or void when returning no values. Functions help remove repetition from your code and make code more readable.
