Or better yet, don't use that tutorial. Apart from using "void main" it
lists strncpy as one of the most useful string functions (it's use is
highly specialised), it keeps having a space after the < of #include
directives, it keeps saying statement blocks are required where you can
alternatively use a single statement (although sometimes it does not
bother with the block it says you need when initially describing the
construct)...

That's what a cursory skim through shows.
