    Post some code!

    What you want to do (a brief explanation) is just to got through the file with fgets or getting the chars separately and analyze them with if/else, or switch, statements.

    To compare strings use strcmp() not == "{"
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Yes, Stoned_Coder is right. If you do:
    Code:
    char *string1, *string2;
    
    // initialize the strings
    
    if (string1 == string2)
    /*** ETC. ***/
    then (unless you set the address of string2 equal to the address of string1) it will be false. Becuase, this evaluates the addresses, not the characters like you are thinking.
