    Find largest numbers

    Hello. I have question. For example i have a structure with items in shop. I want to find out which items i have most. This code words but finds only one item, but if i have several items with same quantity the output still one item. The question is how to make program to show all Items with same biggest quantity.
           for (k=1;k<i;k++)
               if (item[k].quantity>=item[k-1].quantity)
               printf ("most items \n");
               printf (" %s %d \n ",item[max].name,item[max].quantity);
