    Question Question about mass inputting data

    I have a program I need to write that requires inputting a lot of data at once. I know in QBASIC (sorry for the caps, but its an acronym) you can do it using Read/Data statements, but I'm not sure how to do it in C. I'm fairly new to C programming, just coming out of QBASIC, and not sure exactly what to do. Thank you!

    Do you mean a large amount of text from a file source?
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    I am familiar with DATA and READ statements in a very old dialect of BASIC. If it's what you're talking about.... where there is a list of data items... then in C you can just initialize an array something like this:
    int array[] = { 12, 3, 7, 100};

    I meant data that you would normally input into the program, or scan for. I will try setting it up in an array and seeing if that works...if not, I'lll be back ^^
