    Problems with my loop in C(crashes itself)

    I have created a program that loops in C, but when I make into a large scale loop that has to get 1000's of lines of data to print to a file it crashes. I'm not sure how I can fix this, but it might could be done with a time delay. I have not used time delays before, and I have no idea why my program might actually be crashing other than just the overwhelming amount of data. Anyone help me?

    Posting some code may help
    Code - functions and small libraries I use


    It’s 2014 and I still use printf() for debugging.

    So it works with a loop of smaller amounts? It could be anything really. Is the file opened and closed correctly?

    It might be that an array is going out of bounds.

    How big is the file? How large are the buffers which you are reading into?

    Time has nothing to do with it, only correctness. We cant see how to correct your code without seeing your code.
