warning: implicit declaration of function TableCreate

I have to build a hash table data structure for this project, which I have done it in other files. For some reason when I compile my program and I get error, which is regarding initialization function (

) of hash table. When I remove this part of the code from main function and execute, it works fine but then I get segfault when i try to add something to the hash table.

I believe my hash table code has nothing to do with this errors because my hash table code is based upon examples of Hash table code which was provided to us by our professor

I'm using GCC compiler.

Please help me solve this issue.

src/sshell.c: In function âmainâ:

Warning 1: You are calling TableCreate while your function name is Table_create

Warning 2: After looking at new identifier followed by (, compiler assumes it is a function that takes variable number of arguments and returns int.
