It is, in fact, something simple.  It's precisely what the warning message
describes (and please note that it's a *WARNING*, not an error).  An
introductory book to the C programming language would cover this.  You
must declare the existence and type of a function (or variable) before you
use it.  Here, you're using the do_sac() function.  Later (or perhaps in
another file), you define it.  Since you're using it before the definition
and without a declaration, the compiler sees your call to do_sac() before
it knows what do_sac() is.  A function prototype will make the warning go
away.  Just place:


in fight.c.  A good place would be where the other function prototypes
are at the beginning of the file, beneath "/* local functions */".
