legacy code error vs zero experience

Please find bellow a code I have on my system written by my predecessor … I am brand new to Arduino and getting to grips with the basics but I can’t find what is wrong with this code.
I get the error <

C:\Users\jim\AppData\Local\Temp\build8007785878879012402.tmp/core.a(main.cpp.o): In function main': C:\Users\jim\Desktop\arduino-1.6.5-r5\hardware\arduino\avr\cores\arduino/main.cpp:34: undefined reference to setup’
collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Error compiling.

I have an Uno and a digispark attiny85 board (I believe this code was previously used on an attiny although the pin number suggests not this instance…

<// Program to convert a word or phrase into morse code and transmit through digital Pin 13, which can in turn be attached to an LED or relay

char c ; //Switch case variable

char arr = “is there anybody out there?”; //character array where message to be converted is stored
int ledPin = 13; //initialise output on pin 13
int dotTime = 200; //duration in ms of value T

void sendDot() {
digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);

}

digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);

You need a setup function. If you add this it will compile at least:

void setup()
{
  
}

Edit: you're going to need to set the pinMode of your pins to OUTPUT too. In the setup function.

Morse doesn’t have upper and lower case, so your code is longer than it needs to be.

case 'a':
case 'A' : flash("01"); break;

Please remember to use code tags when posting code - hopefully, you can see why now.

If you get blocked on this project, there are literally hundreds (maybe even thousands) of morse programs online...

Thankyou all, What a pleasant first experience of this forum.. Problem solved - no setup code.. now rectified.. Thats my first job done. now to learn what I can about rgb/hsv gradients... I hope to bother you guys as little as possible :)

The next time you post code please follow the advice on posting a programming question given in Read this before posting a programming question

In particular note the advice to Auto format code in the IDE and to use code tags when posting code here as it prevents some combinations of characters in code being interpreted as HTML commands such as italics, bold or a smiley character, all of which render the code useless

absolutely, and apologies. I did read the guide and tried to adhere but didn't understand how to use code tags at that point fully.. I will make sure I do so next time ..

Using code tags is easy

In the IDE, right click anywhere in the code, select "Copy for Forum" then paste into a message and it will be complete with code tags
