    Note: You may use <string.h> library functions such as strcpy and strcmp.

    Hobbiton Town is a fictitious town populated by a race called hobbits.

    You are to develop a program to allow users to keep track on the hobbits in Hobbits Town.

    A HobbitRec contains the below information:

    - HobbitID : 10 characters
    - Name : 30 characters
    - DateOfBirth : date format in nested date structure type dd/mm/yyyy
    - Height : float type
    - Weight : float type


    You program should be able to store up to 1000 HobbitRec records in an array called HobbitsArray.

    Your program should at least perform the below operations:

    - Add new hobbit records into HobbitsArray
    - Display all hobbits' records
    - Find and display a particular hobbit given the name or HibbitID
    - Delete a particular hobbit given the name or HibbitID
    - Update a particular hobbit's record given the name or HibbitID

    Code:
    struct hob
      {
      char hobbitid[11];
      char name[31];
      etc.....
      }
    
    hob hobbitsarray[1000];

    Oh, I see...
    Example i have to print out hobbitid, is it look like this :
    Code:
    printf("%s", hobbitsarray.hobbitid);
    Correct or not ?

    >Correct or not ?

    Not.

    Reference a particluar element of the array.
    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Code:
    hobbitsarray.hobbitid
    should be:
    Code:
    hobbitsarray[124].hobbitid
    so you are using the hobbitid of the 125th hobbit record (remember count from 0)
