I am newbie to C and getting the compilation error in the following function.

int get_names(int students, char names[students][20])
{
        int i;
        for (i = 0; i < students; ++i)
        {
                printf("Enter name for Student %d: ", i);
                scanf("%s", names[i]);
        }
        return char names[students];
}

Error:

return char names[students];
error: expected expression before 'char'

Return statement does not require type name

Wrong

return char names[students];

Right Way

return names[students]; // No char

Recently I was dealing with some problems in Compiler design. What I want is a tool which can do step by step compilation of the C Program. One which performs lexical analysis and gives an output file and then syntax analysis on this output file and so on until the final executable code is obtained. Is there such a tool or technique to do this?
