    I have attached a "portion" of the code however I don't think it would be enough to assist me any further.

    It is discerning that you are "worried by the apparent size of this program, and the lack of understanding of some basic C programming principles". This is an introductory course of which I have been in for 2 months. Prior to that I had no programming experience at all.

    Yes the program assigned is extensive but I have no control over that. I thought this forum was for beginners that are in need of help.

    But thank you for all the assistance. It was appreciated.

    Where?

    Maybe so, but that doesn't mean that the tutor is setting the pace of the course at a level which you can cope with.

    We've seen evidence of a lot of bad tutors on this board - from the homework they assign, to the "advice" they give.

    How do you feel you are coping with the course in comparison to your class-mates?
    If everyone is struggling, then the pace needs to be revised.

    It is - but it is not a substitute for a well written tutorial, or a book or a lecture course. Most questions deal with fairly specific points, which are usually easy to answer.

    The problem I was getting to was your question was turning into something much bigger and more significant that the usual "why doesn't this work".

    The course has a 65% failure rate. I am working with others in this course and they are all coping at roughly the same rate I am.

    I agree and that is why this forum was my last resort. I can only imagine the number of bad tutors out there. We are basically on our own.

    I most definately agree.
