    One other common use is to get the number of elements in an array. This can be used like so:

    int x[10];
    size_t i;

    for (i = 0; i < sizeof x / sizeof x[0]; i++)
    x[i] = 1;

    What you have is fine as it is; it's an error to dereference currentP->next if currentP->next stores a null pointer. Your code will ensure that currentP->next isn't dereferenced in such a case.

    qsort requires each element to be of the same length so, obviously, you can't move strings around in an array using it, since they may have different sizes. What you need to do is store a pointer to...

    Yeah. Make your program data-oriented, so that all the information you spam the user with is stored in one place, then write your program so that it operates on that data.

    Why not use a growing array to store the input?...

    Why not use a growing array to store the input? Your program would be more portable since you won't need to use stat.

    In regard to your compare function, try reading the example provided in 'man...

    You don't want to use calloc for pointer types, since it initialises them with all bits zero, which is a meaningless value for pointers. malloc would be a better choice and, if you need them...

    char *strcat(char *s, const char *append)
    {
    return strcpy(s + strlen(s), append), s;
    }
    Figure out how to implement strcpy and strlen, and it should be simple enough to understand.

    It's implementation-dependent. Your system should provide a way to redirect your program's output to a printer.

    EDIT: On most Unix-like systems that's as easy as:

    I see. This makes me wonder about code like:

    'void *' and 'char *' are both able to represent all object pointer types. (6.2.5p28, 6.3.2.3p1)

    Could it be that when two pointers are cast to 'void *', that the destination pointers are...

    You'll need to include <stdlib.h> to make the declaration for qsort available as well. It's also a good idea to terminate your program's output with a new-line character.

    Are you sure it has undefined behaviour, rather than unspecified behaviour? If it were true I think that would make it impossible to implement memmove() in a standard-compliant manner.
