No need for the parentheses, and 'c' doesn't have a value yet. If you
add 'c=""' before the while-loop, it should be fine.

Here there is also no need for parentheses.

The problem with the world is stupidity. Not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the
safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
