    help needed! string literals

    I am new to C programming, i am currently working on a program where i must accept keyboard input and reproduce the text after eliminating white space. unless the text is in a string literal, then it must be reproduced with spaces. i have the first part (printing without spaces) but im not quite sure how to make it print normally within string literals....can anyone help me? here is my code

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
       int c;
       
       printf("This program eliminates whitespace from an input stream,\n");
       printf("except from within string literals in double quotes.\n");
       printf("\n");
       printf("Type characters, and enter EOF after <enter> to finish:\n");
       
       while ((c = getchar()) != EOF) 
          if ( c != ' ') 
          putchar(c);
          
       system("pause");
       return 0;
    }

    Dude, you previous thread was moved to the C programming board since the code is pure C and you yourself state you are learning C, not C++
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
