    Post html parse help

    Is there another logic for this purpose: Read through an input file for tags ex: <html> </html> <head> </head>
    and check if the other half of the pair is also present. If <html> is there, its other half< /html> should also be present. If not report an error message stating which tag is missing. For this question, I'm thinking to apply the following logic.

    Read throught the file till I get a '<' then put that whole tag like<head> in a stack and when I find the other half pop it from the stack.

    Is there a better, less strain logical way to to perform this application.

    Please advise.

    Using a stack would be the best way I can think of to easily handle nested tags.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Nope, you pretty much outlined the best way to accomplish this task.

    EDIT: Ok, misread the question

    You cold use a recursive function for this, too.

    #include <stdio.h>
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    Using a recursive function uses the function stack. Can't escape stacks . . . .
