    still a problem with txt files

    what code would you use to put this:

    1.question
    answer1
    answer2
    answer3
    answer4
    2.question
    answer1
    answer2
    answer3
    answer4 and so on for 15 questions

    into this:
    Code:
    struct quiz
    {
       char q[81], a[4][81];
    } question[15];
    I'm runnin' out of idas and nothing works!!! It doesn't read data from a file to a structure.

            /* use getline() to read question[i].a[j] from the file */
    
        }
