    Question Help is needed, reading a string

    Hi all:

    I need to read a string from a file as following:

    long custid - 2 - 12 "No bugs"



    I am thinking of using fscanf(), but the problem is that fscanf() will stop while encountering a space. I want to read "No bugs" as a whole word.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    The outcome I want:

    long custid - 2 - 12 "No bugs"

    After I read from the file:

    long
    custid
    -
    2
    -
    12
    "No bugs"

    You should search on this question, since I believe that exact example was used here not an incredibly long time ago.
