    You need to open the file using fopen() and the "w" mode, then you can write to the file just like you write to the screen. When you're done, be sure to close the file with fclose(). It's that easy.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    
    int main( void ) {
      FILE *fp = fopen( "file.txt", "w" );
    
      if ( fp ) {
        fprintf( fp, "writing to the file\n" );
        fclose( fp );
      }
    
      return 0;
    }

    I'm not going to write your program for you. Try writing some little test programs with the one I gave you as an example and figure out how it works. It really helps if you have a book or a good tutorial. I think cprogramming.com has a tutorial on working with files.
