    I think you have confused me with someone else, since I do not use the former term (i.e., I make every attempt to avoid the use of words that may require censorship). I certainly have called you blunt, perhaps terribly blunt, but "chillingly blunt" does not quite sound like the term that I would use.

    Generally, rather helpful -- yes. Tutors, NO!
    So our job is to do things that work against the tutors? That's pretty much what you were supporting in Msh's post. I mean, Msh worked against the OP's tutor by changing an exercise in an example. You claimed that this was not wrong as we learn by examples. Hence, you were saying the original tutors did a bad thing, or a useless thing, by stating an exercise rather than giving a bunch of code.

    DAMN IT! I meant to write "right" there.

    Let me fix it: "Actually, I've never thought any of those things about you. But I have to say, laserlight is right a hell of a lot of the time."
    I have no idea what made me type "wrong" there. Maybe I was thinking of Adak :P.

    The entire joke is wasted there, though. Yes, the post was intended to be somewhat funny.

    FAIL

    We are NOT tutors, and we are not working AGAINST tutors, either.

    We are exploring C, discussing C, discovering C, and having a bit of fun with it.

    A tutor has a different role, and a different relationship with the student.

    Your idea of what I was saying is twisted beyond all recognition from reality, of course.

    This is not going anywhere good that I can see -- can we just drop the topic?

    I see that this community has strong feelings about its traditions, and I apologize for my ignorance of those. In future, I will do my best to keep within the guidelines defined by these traditions and, in true spirit of C, provide pointers-to solutions rather then solutions.

    That would be good. Personally, I feel that what you did was okay: vmckoon2 made an effort, and you judged it sufficient for you to post a better version. It may have been better to post more hints first, but how much effort should be required from the help seeker before a concrete example may be ventured is rather subjective.

    Make sure those pointers point to a valid solution

    Just kidding.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    Apoorva, you're almost guaranteed NOT to get the program you want, here. "Plz give me da codz", doesn't work here, 99% of the time.

    Post up your attempt (yes code), and describe your problem with your program, and we'll help.

    Always start a new thread, instead of reviving a "Zombie" thread. They pretty much get ignored, or worse - attacked. Alas, nobody likes Zombies!
