    Question space between names

    I'm new to programming in general. I've been working in this problem for a bit now. it tells me that "If there is no middle initial then there should only be one (1) space separating the first name and the last name"
    my solution is this but unfortunately if there's no middle name the space still showing between the first and last name.

    printf(" %s %s %s\n", contacts->name.firstName, contacts->name.middleInitial, contacts->name.lastName);

    can any of you guy help me with this? I have no idea where to start.

    Use this when there is no middle initial.
    printf("%s %s\n", contacts->name.firstName, contacts->name.lastName);
    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.

    Look up strlen
