You've stopped defining that function, and now are doing top-level code
This following stuff belongs in a function, probably called main()

Now, in top-level code, you're trying to call a function that hasn't
been defined yet. If you want to have complete freedom of order when
you define your functions, don't put any top-level code except a tiny
block at the end of the script. No function may be called before it has
been defined. But inside a function, the call won't be made till the
function is called. So if the only calls happen at the end of the
script, there'll never be such a problem.

This should be the only non-trivial top-level code, and it should be at
the end of the script.
