    FILE fp = fopen ("blah.txt","w");
    fprintf (fp, "%s", var1);
    ...
    fprintf (fp, "%s", varX);
    fclose (fp);

    ====

    FILE fp = fopen ("blah.txt","r");
    fgets (...)
    fclose (fp);

    ===

    however, ensure you check your pointers first ! (not shown in above example)

    Please read this page.

    Griff, once you've read that link, edit your original post and add code tags.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
