    I'd be fine with this thread if the quality of comments was actually good. Regardless of whether you guys are feeding a troll or bashing a noob, this simply isn't that entertaining.

    You could create a local variable to point at node->next though and then there would be no problem in deleting node before the recursive call. This creates a local variable though which is kind of a...

    I don't really know what you're asking. You can use fseek or fsetpos if you like but it's overcomplicating the issue. Just start at the beginning of the file and read characters (discarding them)...

    These probably exist but if everyone knew about them they would be filled pretty quickly. I'd just advise you to try to get a job where you can meet plenty of different people (a consultant maybe?)...

    Try to never mix fread/fwrite with fprintf/fscanf, use either one set or the other.

    Fair warning: I am reasonably drunk and this is too much stuff to proofread so sorry if a lot of this is wrong and riddled with spelling/grammatical errors.

    For some reason you're trying to create your tree inside insert which isn't working because modifying a local variable has no effect once that variable goes out of scope.

    Have a go at it and post your code. If you can print one matrix then printing two matrices shouldn't be that much of a jump.

    You can't say why...? I'm guessing the code must be for MI6 or the NSA then.

    There are only two things that I can really tell you from this.
    One is that you shouldn't be using global variables....

    Yeah I didn't read close enough the first time. That code makes absolutely no sense.

    Look at it conceptually. The two components of the body of the loop do entirely different things.

    Yes, you lose everything. You need to free the memory after you no longer require it. Exiting the program doesn't automatically release all the memory to the operating system, or at least you...

    Welcome to the forum.

    Great start. Good modularity, good indentation.

    Well I mean parameters are just passed by value and it's not like you can pass the index because if you had the index then you wouldn't need to call the function :). I know that it's just pseudocode...
