    I have finished my program, one problem

    Hello guys and gals I have finally finished my program! Everything runs smoothly until the program gets to the last function. Instead of giving me the lowest value it gives me a value that is not even part of the planes data file. Can anyone see what the problem is? And thanks again for all your help.

    anyway here is the program (in code tags)
    Code:
    
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <math.h>
    #include <time.h>
    //#include <malloc.h>
    
    
    
    /* function Declarations */
       int FunctionPassword(FILE *Fpassword);
       void FunctionPlanes(FILE *Fplanes);
       void FunctionDistout(FILE *Fplanes, FILE *Fdistout);
       void FunctionPrintSound(FILE *Fplanes);
    
    /*start of main */
        int main()
       {
       
          /*declaring files */
          FILE *Fpassword;
          FILE *Fplanes;

          Fpassword=fopen("/users/williammcfadden/Documents/school/EGR 115/Final Project/password.txt", "r");
          if(Fpassword == NULL)
          {
             printf("Sorry I can not find the password File \n");
             system ("pause");
             exit(0);

    Notice that none of these numbers are in the data file. Where did it get these 0's from?

    and when I get to the function which prints to the screen it gives this
    Code:
    [Session started at 2005-11-28 22:04:14 -0500.]
    Please enter your name

    23456
    Nearest aircraft at 0 0 0 is 00.00 KM away 
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Final Project has exited with status 0.
    What can be the problem? I keep editing this thread when I edit the program and I keep making things worse.

    1. if you're using gcc, at least use -W -Wall as the command line parameters

    foo.c: In function `FunctionDistout':
    foo.c:208: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 3)
    foo.c:208: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 4)
    foo.c:208: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 5)
    foo.c: In function `FunctionPrintSound':
    foo.c:250: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 3)
    foo.c:250: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 4)
    foo.c:250: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 5)

    Your printf/scanf functions are wrong.
