    Homework HELP - Problem Printing to file

    We have a homework problem that requires us to compare two files and combine data from both in order to make a third file. I am having trouble printing multiple lines of data to the third file. You can find the project description at the following website:

    http://www.brentshreve.com

    You can look at my code through this link:

    http://www.brentshreve.com/test.c

    You will need these files in your local directory to properly execute my code:

    http://www.brentshreve.com/exam.txt

    Thank you for your time in responding. You can e-mail me at bshreve@purdue.edu or call me at (765) 490-9644 if you're nice enough ) This project is due at 11pm CST tonight. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    No, I only have one problem with a little part of the project, but it's preventing me from doing the rest of the project.

    > if (userid2 == userid)
    Use strcmp() or strncmp() to compare strings:
    if (strcmp(userid2, userid) == 0) /* Strings are equal */

    Try www.cprog-tardis.com or www.cprog-miracles.com then. Quite what you expect anyone else to do about it with about 4 hours to go is beyond me. Maybe a course in basic time managment would be a good idea, because if you can't manage that, coding is not for you.

    Dang it, I knew I was supposed to be somewhere, but I missed that lecture

    Oh you poor soul, you're learning from someone who doesn't know C either (now how often do we see that here!)
    Try stdlib.h

    Oh man, I was SO looking forward to reading that - just to see how badly your tutors are at coding in C. If it's anything like the usual benchmark, 10% of the lines are incorrect in some way.
    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.

    I heard they used Merge Sort. At least that's what I'm told, I pay someone to go to the lectures for me.
