    FILE*: what and where is this

    I have source code including a data type FILE*. But my compiler won work with it and I don't know where to find info about it. Is it in a library or is it special for some compilers?

    it' a macro, or a define or whatever, that allows you to manipulate files using C language syntax, once you know the rest of the story.
