    Reading a text file and printing it out

    Hi I am a new drain on the community ready to annoy the real programers.

    I am wondering how to read a text file and then afterwards print it out. I am a bit lost, please be gentle with me.

    There are several ways - word by word, char by char, line by line, etc.

    Best if you started out with some tutorials, and worked your way up, on general C programming. Lots of C tutorials, but maybe start with this one:

    Cprogramming.com: How to Get Started with C++

    and Welcome to the forum, Roisis!

    Solution

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main (int argc, const char * argv[])
    {
    	FILE *f;
    	char s[1000];
    	
    	f=fopen("/Users/rolsis/Desktop/mytext.txt", "r");
    	if(!f)
    		return 1;
    	while (fgets(s,1000,f)!=NULL) {
    		printf("%s", s);
    	}
    	fclose(f);
    	return 0;
    }
