    Help with searching for word in files

    Hi,
    so I've searching on how to have my code successfully search for a word in my file from the user input and display the info after that word but it's in vain. Can anyone please explain and show the example code of doing so?

    OK, you need
    - fopen
    - fgets
    - strstr

    Over to you.
    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.
