The void is a data type which tells to compile; it is a return type of the main function. The main is a predefined function which is the entry point of every program.

Void main is the entry gate of the program when you run the program then this is called first by the compiler.

Void main is a function which does not return any value. Or in the simple form, it is null so we can return anything. If used int main will requires returns 0 or any value as maths rule LHS=RHS.

When nothing is to be returned from the main function, we write void main() because void is taken as NULL. When the value to be returned is in integer format, we write int main().

Main () is the function from where program execution starts. And the void is the empty return type.

Hello Noreen,

In simple terms, the void main() is an entry point of c, c++ or Java program.

In C, C++ or Java, the program starts execution from the main function.

Now let's talk about the main part of your questions what is void in void main(). C has statically typed programming language before sending it to the compiler we always need to specify the return type of function. If the function is returning any value which is going to be used in an expression, then you should specify a return type, e.g. int, float, char.

If the function is not returning any value at that time, you must specify void so that compiler won't look for the return value in the function.

If you're using modern compiler like GCC, you need to specify int main so that where you can return 1 or 0 or -1 to the loader.

Also, don't get confused between Null and void. There is a different meaning of null in programming. Null is considered as a value or constant when you want to create a variable you can assign null value, but you can't assign void to any variable. 

I hope this will clear your doubt. If not, try to practice on the same and learn from errors.

Happy Coding :)
