Question description

Write a C program using multiple functions that will calculate the gross pay for a set of employees

The program determines the overtime hours (anything over 40 hours), the gross pay and then outputs a table in the following format. Column alignment, leading zeros in Clock number, and zero suppression in float fields is important. Use 1.5 as the overtime pay factor.

  Clock#  Wage  Hours  OT  Gross
  098401  10.60  51.0  11.0  598.90
  526488  9.75  42.5  2.5  426.56
  765349  10.50  37.0  0.0  388.50
  034645  12.25  45.0  5.0  581.88
  127615  8.35  0.0  0.0  0.00

Use the following information to initialize your data.

  98401  10.60 
  526488  9.75
  765349  10.50
  34645  12.25
  127615  8.35

You should implement this program using one array for clock number, one array for wage rate, etc.

Limit your use of global variables - Learn how to pass parameters!
Remember to use constants and all the other things we have covered up to this assignment
Re-read the homework standards ... make sure that each local variable is commented in EACH function, and EACH function has a descriptive function comment header
As a challenge, you can have your program prompt the user to enter the number of hours each employee worked. When prompted, key in the hours shown below.  If you wish to just use a constant for array size and predefine clock and wage values into arrays, that is acceptable.

Do define your array size up front in your variable declaration.  Don't define the array size at run time with a variable.  This strategy does not always work on every C compiler.

Create a separate function whenever possible to break up your program. For instance, you might have a function for obtaining the hours from the user, another function for calculating overtime hours, another for calculating gross pay and another function for producing the output.  At a minimum, you should have a main function and three or more other functions.
