Dear Nitin,

Main is a driver function. Void is a return type of the main function void means not returning any thing.
The program execution starts from the function main this means main is a starting point of your program.

Not returning anything means not returning a value.But we do return a value in  programs.For ex:-

#include<iostream.h>

#include<conio.h>

void main()

{

int a,b;

cout<<"Enter two values : ";

cin>>a>>b;

cout<<"\n Sum is : "<<a+b;

getch();

}

In this example we do return a value of -- a+b;But the void function doesn't return a value.So where I got wrong?Please let me know
