    Code:
    for(i=0;!feof(f1);i++) {
          fscanf(f1,"&#37;s%lf",rec[i].name,&rec[i].number);
          fclose(f1);   }
    do not use feof to control loop - read FAQ
    if you close file after the first read - second will definitely fail
    The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time,
    the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time.
