    Yes, fgets.
    Code:
    while(!asleep) {
       sheep++;
    }

    There are examples on the bottom of these pages:

    fgetc
    fgetc, fgetwc, _fgetchar, _fgetwchar (CRT)

    fread (which would be better for those structs you have been working on)
    fread (CRT)

    What I can gather from you is that you want to sort the structs which you created in the other thread.

    What you need to do is use a linked-list. The title of your other thread did have the word "linked-list", but you never ended up actually doing a linked list.

    The way you need to go forward with your program (in my opinion) is to forget about saving the data until you can put it in a linked list. Once you are there, you can search and sort very easily.
