    Question Reading text file

    Hi all,

    I am reading a text file using fgets(). The text file contains paths to different web pages. When I try to print the read string I could see an extra char at the end of the string, I believe that the newline character is copied to the entire string. My question is: How can I get rid of this last character? part of my code looks like this:

    while (!feof(data))
    {
    fgets(strURL, 256, data);
    printf( strURL);
    }
    fclose(data);

    Thanks in advance.
