    You're writing C++ here - because you follow it with more variable declarations.
    You can't mix declarations and statements in C.

    > #include <malloc.h>
    You don't need this - malloc is in stdlib.h

    > scanf("%s", &temp_char);
    scanf("%s", temp_char);

    > *ptr++;
    ptr++;
    You're just moving the pointer, you're not interested in the value it points to.
    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.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
