    PROBLEMS :

    1.) This is our source code, the problem here is that when we are prompt to enter "personal password" we successfully got in, but it does not identify any wrong passwords.

    ex. "Please enter a password"
    ---- password
    "type your password:"
    ----password1 (Even if i typed the wrong password I registered earlier it still lets me into the program menu.)

    I will post further problems if I find more.. ;D please do help me thank you.,.

    Where do you compare the two passwords?
    I saw no strcmp in your code.

    i added this set of codes, but it still doesn't work.

    Code:
    while(!feof(f)&& grant==0){
    		fscanf(f,"%s",pass);
    		if(strcmp(pass,pass2)==0){
    			grant=1;
    			}
    	}

    Oh please, you've just mashed together bits of code from several places and now you're asking us to fix it for you.
    C program of Student Database System

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry - when someone calls themselves "c code champ" and writes such a train-wreck of gotos

    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.

    Ummm....
    You prompt for a password, store it in pass2 and write it out to a file:

    Code:
    f=fopen("pass.txt","w"); 
    get_password(pass2);
    fprintf(f,"%s",pass2);
    Then you prompt for a password and store it in pass.
    Code:
    get_password(pass);
    But then you reaopen the file and read the saved password into pass. So you're just comparing what you read from the file to what you wrote to the file earlier.

    Code:
    f=fopen("pass.txt","r");
    fscanf(f,"%s",pass);
    strcmp(pass, pass2);
    strcmp the right two strings and this bit will probably work, wouldn't like to speculate on the rest of the program though...
