    Project Help Concerning Scanning in data

    Hi. I am currently trying to complete a programming project for my C Prog Class, and I am having trouble with acquiring the data in a given txt file and then setting aside parts of the data as variables for later usage. However, I am unable to describe such issues, so if anyone could help I can send you the project parameters, the .txt file I use for input and the sample of the result (though that might not be so necessary).

    I am currently having issues getting this project started, and I only request help on scanning in the information.

    If anyone can help me, please e-mail me at <<<snipped>>>. I can then reply to you with the listed information, and hopefully I can get on my way to actually completing this project.

    The best place for you to start is probably C File I/O Tutorial -
    Fact - Beethoven wrote his first symphony in C

    Why don't you post/attach your data file,
    - or a section of it containing the interesting data,
    - or a representation of it where real names (Barak Obama) are replaced by fictitious (Fred Flintstone)

    Then describe what it is that you want to do.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
