    and I need to stop doing other people's homework and start working on mine.

    here's an idea, now unless you post some code, no one is going to help you.

    make a struct for the stuff you will be dealing with in these so called records.
    Code:
    struct record
    {
        int id;
        char name[20];
    };
    design how the file will be layed out maybe something like
    Code:
    0
    my name
    1
    second name
    2 
    third name
    and come up with your own way of inputting it correctly. If you cannot do this then go back and learn the basics more.

    as for when you press the '0' key it's up to you... if you don't mind platform specific (dos) use getch()
    otherwise when you prompt for something you can check if the input was '0'

    it's up to you.
