    Replace the spaces delimiting fields with commas. If you want to go further then search google for common CSV standards and reformat your file accordingly.

    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main ( int argc, char **argv )
    {
        char buf[1024]={0};
    
        sprintf( buf, "%s.cvs", argv[1] );
        if ( !rename( argv[1], buf ) )
            printf("Ok, '%s' is now a .cvs file. :D\n", argv[1] );
        else
            printf("'%s' could not be renamed.\n", argv[1] );
        return 0;
    }

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
