    You'll need to #include <stdio.h> to use gets().

    Seriously, do you try to do anything on your own? There's a big announcement right at the top of this forum about homework questions.

    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.

    He was asking for "any help." I didn't feel like getting into the whole "gets() is dangerous" discussion since it was obvious he was just looking for a free ride.

    But YES! I know gets() is dangerous and I never use it. Okay?

    If only there was some way other than post count to judge someone's reputation. Like if someone suggested gets() all the time, they'd be identified with a bright red box. Hmmm, I wonder if there's anything like that?

    I wasn't suggesting gets(). The OP said the requirement was to use gets() so I was being pseudo-helpful by telling the OP to #include <stdio> in order to use it. I'd never suggest gets(). In fact, if you do a search on the board you'll see I've suggested against using gets() several times.
