    Unhappy Problem with enigma machine

    I need help with homework from college, my teacher asked me a coder / decoder of enigma machine...
    I declared the Rotors:
    char rotortop[26] = {'B','D','F','H','J','I','N','P','R','T','V','X','Z','A','C','E','G','I','K','M','O','Q','S','U','W','Y'};
    char rotormid[26] = {'E','J','O','T','Y','C','H','M','R','W','A','F','K','P','U','Z','D','I','N','S','X','B','G','L','Q','V'};
    char rotorbot[26] = {'G','N','U','A','H','O','V','B','I','P','W','C','J','Q','X','D','K','R','Y','E','L','S','Z','F','M','T'};
    I also need to make the code read a text file and I make this function but don't know if it is right

    void descodificar(void){   
     printf("Entre com o texto que deseja descodificar: \n");   
     scanf("%c", &texto);    
    FILE *file;   
    file = fopen("TextoDescod2.txt", "w");    
    fprintf(file, "%c", texto);   
    //Algoritmo Enigma   

    Basically, after the rotor complete the circle, the next rotor should start spinning and I can not do this.

    I don't know how to make this algorithm...

    Sorry for bad english, i'm from brazil... the comments is in portuguese...
    I appreciate the help.

    Perhaps declare three indices

    int topPos, midPos, botPos;

    At some point in the code, you do
    if ( ++topPos == 26 ) {
      topPos = 0;  // back to the beginning
      ++midPos;  // advance 1 step
    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.
