    int main(void)
    	FILE *testFile;
    	int age;
    	char name[40];
    	testFile = fopen("c:\\testFile.txt", "w");
    	printf("\n\n\tEnter your name here: ");
    	printf("\tEnter your age here: ");
    	scanf("%i", &age);
    	fprintf(testFile, "The name you have inputed is: %s", name);
    	fprintf(testFile, "\nYour age is: %i", age);
    	system("notepad.exe c:\\testFile.txt");
    	return 0;

            *newline_ptr = '\0';
        /* Read error or pre-mature EOF. */

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
