    [BIG HELP:] File Reading and Writing in C

    hello guys!!! pls help me with my probem..

    i just want to make a simple database like,,

    the program will ask the user if he wants to edit the existing info. in the "printf", but if he edit it, the details he typed will store in a .TXT file,

    for ex.:


    #include<stdio.h>
    main()
    {
    printf("I am .R.");
    /*then the program will ask if the user wants to edit the details in "printf", if the user want it, then the program wil provide a .txt file, that will be the database of the program where the details will be stored if the user edited the "printf".*/


    pls help me guys... ASAP pls.. tnx!

    Well, besides printing a prompt, you should read the file for the existing contents, and the write to the file what the user provides.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Look up a C++ Reference and learn How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

    Sounds like a homework assignment to me. You need to post up what you have tried so far and we can go from there. Without that, take a look at C Made Easy Tutorials. They will get you headed in the right direction.

    Warning: Some or all of my posted code may be non-standard and as such should not be used and in no case looked at.

    1) Please don't bump threads... and especially not after only 4 minutes!

    2) No; we're not going to give you code so you can "use that in my program"... that's scoop and poop coding and it's NOT how you learn C.

    Do you actually want to learn C programming or are you just trying to pass a course you didn't want to take in the first place?

    If it's the former... get a decent book on C ( Teach Yourself C in 21 Days is pretty good... The C Programming Language is held in very high esteem) and start with page 1... read every word, compile the examples and exercises, learn what does and does not work... review as necessary, then turn to page 2 ... by the time you get to the end of the book you should be able to write simple programs in console mode... the rest comes with experience and practice.

    CommonTater, you are awesome. I am also learning C, and I find it very helpful to read a lot of tutorials and sample code, and then try and create programs that will cause you to run into problems and have to solve them. Good luck to you kal27 .

    no just an example of the code so that i could analyze it, testing it, and may make code. in that case, i learned to that code... i'm not up to the sake of completion, i just need a simple code so that i can make advance code. tnx to your respond...

    Trust me Kal ... you're not going to learn C by memorizing code snippets... The only way I know to make something this complex actually sink in and stay sunk in is through a protracted course of deliberate study.

    (Hint: There will be plenty of code snippets in your text books... )
