    Read Each Line of File as Array Record

    Hi All,

    Im having a lot of problems trying to work out a piece of code for a small program.

    What im trying to do is to write a function which reads each line of a text file called 'FILE1' into a new record in an array. I then want to do the same with another text file called 'FILE2'. This should allow me to compare each records of 'ARRAY1' to each record of 'ARRAY2' and report if they are the same.

    e.g.

    FILE 1 / ARRAY 1 FILE 2 / ARRAY 2 MATCH?
    AAAA DDDD Yes (As D is in both)
    BBBB EEEE NO
    CCCC FFFF NO
    DDDD GGGG NO


    Im sorry to put such a simple diagram in but couldn't think how else to explain it.

    Thank you so much for any help, ideas, thoughts or code,
    Leo2010

    Reading a line into an array is easy to do with fgets. How efficient you then can compare the two files depends on whether or not they are sorted in some way like in your example.

    It would be a lot easier if you would just show what you've attempted so we can see what you did wrong.
