    1) I don't know what that is about
    2)list[6] must be an array because it has the element number inside the brackets. jump(4) is most likely a function call because it is passing a variable.
    3)you can't change the #50 element as in array[50], because the array starts with 0 and goes to 49, making 50. If you tried to access the 50 element it would probably cause a GPF or somehting similar.

    You should probably try to find out the answers to these questions in a book or asking somebody in your class, but I don't mind helping you if you learn something.

    To answer your first question, I have never used feof() but the man page says.
    The  function feof tests the end-of-file indicator for the
           stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if  it  is
    So !feof(input) must mean that the end-of-file indicator wasn't set. Since only zero is non-zero and ! infront of anything indicates zero(false).
