"register int i" is merely an optimization, you can safely use "int i" instead. The "register" keyword only tells the compiler to store the variable in a CPU register where possible - it is not necessary at all (most modern compiler will optimize it correctly anyway). Crucial mistake in your example was the improper use of function parameters and pointers.
