C language script: Compare 2 passwords

This script asks user to input password 2 times, and checks if the input is same both times.

#include <stdio.h>
#define SIZE 15

/*  check_passwd function prototype */

char check_passwd (char [],char []);
/* main function */

int main (void) {

char passwd1[SIZE], passwd2[SIZE], ch;

   printf("\nPlease enter password [max %d char]: ", SIZE);
   printf("\nPlease confirm your password [max %d char]: ", SIZE);


if (ch == 'A')
 printf("\nThank you! Your password is being saved!");
 else {
         printf("\nUnfortunately your passwords do not match!\n");
         printf("\nWrong letter << %c >>\n", ch);
return 0;

/* function check passwd */
char check_passwd (char passwd1[],char temp[]){
  int i;

     char ch = '+';
    for (i=0;passwd1[i] != '';i++){

  if (passwd1[i] != temp[i])

if (ch == '+')
       return 'A';
       return ch;
