    Smile novice help

    Assume the input is in the form of date-month-year, such as 20-january-2010, how would you read the date, the month and the year? Note in this case, the month is not a number. It is a string.

    i understand that
    day = int, month = str[size], year = int.

    Please help with the codes using scanf and printf. anyone? thank you!

    Nope, that's not what we do. We aren't homework doers. You do your own assignments, and we will

    if you get stuck on some aspect of C.

    So code up your program, and if you get stuck, then post up your code, and tell us what has you stumped. Not just, "it doesn't work".

    Read some documentation, try some code, and then post it. You will have to do this anyway, and it is easier to explain by correcting mistakes
    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
