    Question Help Needed - File Splitter and Merger

    Hey folks,
    I request you to please read my whole post and help me out.
    I'm a student of Computer Science and I have just started C language.
    I've completed following few topics in C:-
    1. Loops
    2. Arrays
    3. Functions

    My teacher has chosen me to complete a program that Splits and Merges a file. I told him that I can't do it right now but he especially chose me to do it as he said he knows I can do it.
    I just want to ask you professionals that please tell me what more topics should I learn before starting on this project. Do I have to learn C++ and C# to build this application?
    Please guide me though this. I want to build it myself, I just want to know what topics should I cover before starting on it.

    Thanks

    No.

    All you need is
    fopen
    fread
    fwrite
    fclose
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Thanks Sir.
    Are these topics included in functions?
    And can it be built totally using only C ?

    Yes, they're all standard C functions.

    Thanks a lot.
    I have to now look into Functions more deeply and extensively.
