    >p = strtok(line_in, " \t<>\n");
    Take the first sequence of characters from line_in up to a tab, opening angle bracket, closing angle bracket or newline and assign the address of the beginning of that sequence to p.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    I'd prefer
    Code:
    for (i = 0; i < margin; i++)
        putchar(' ');
    But you can write it a lot of ways depending on what type of loop you use.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    Why not just look at the manual to find out what functions do.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
