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.
