        1) You may want to pick up a book on how to write c programs. This
isn't just a novice-level error which you have shown us, this is, quite
literally, the most simplistic problem I've ever had the misfortune of
seeing, especially though, on a mailing list.

        2) Here's how to fix it:

        Up in that printf function, replace the 'k' with 'i+1'. You're not
incrementing k, you're using i as the number, so may as well just
duplicate it. You can also remove the declaration of 'int k=1', up above,
unless it is somewhere used later (doubt it).
