    • Your file ends in .cpp. You are asking for help in the C subforum.
    • You can only return one variable or value. You are attempting to return multiple variables in your scan() function.
    • The pointers in your scan() function are dangling pointers. You never initialized them.
    • Your program uses the scanf function directly.
    • There are multiple ways to scan in data. For example, using gets. But gets is not a "safe" function.
    • Using "goto" when not needed is generally seen as a poor programming habit.
    • conio.h isn't standard C. It's better to just use getchar to keep the console open.

    Yes, by using say, fscanf or sscanf, or by parsing the input yourself.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
