    Hi, you could use sprintf to write to a string, and then copy the characters to another string.

    You set me on the right path, thanks a ton!

    Finished/working code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    struct telephone {
    	char name[80];
    	long long int number;
    main() {
    	int amount = 0;
    	int i;
    	FILE *fp;
    	fp = fopen("phone.txt", "r");
    	fscanf(fp, " %d", &amount);
    	struct telephone list[amount];
    	// Scan in name and number records
    	for(i = 0; i < amount; i++) {
    		fscanf(fp, "%s", list[i].name);
    		fscanf(fp, " %lld", &list[i].number);
    	// Sort lists (and display)
    	bubbleSort(list, amount);
    bubbleSort(struct telephone *list, int amount) {
    	struct telephone temp;
    	int changed = 0; // Boolean 0 = false, 1 = true
    	int j, i;
    	do {
    		changed = 0; // Resets on every pass
    		for(j = 0; j < amount - 1; j++) // Minus one because IF uses +1 to look at next
    			if(list[j].number > list[j + 1].number) {
    				temp = list[j]; // Shift value to temporary spot
    				list[j] = list[j + 1]; // Shift higher value into value i
    				list[j + 1] = temp; // Shift temp into higher value (swap)
    				changed = 1;
    	} while(changed = 0); // Stop when there is no change
    	// Display lists
    	for(i = 0; i < amount; i++) {
    DisplayStruct(struct telephone input) {
    	char str[80];
    	sprintf(str, "%lld %s\n", input.number,; // Convert to string
    	printf("%.3s-%.3s-%4s", str, str + 3, str + 6);
  2. In Topic: Recursive Function Using Substrings

    Wow, this is incredibly helpful. I'm tracing through the function and getting a lot out of it. Definately makes sense. Thanks so much!

    String args[] is to pass arguments to the program,just use them. First argument is args[0]

    ...You just blew my mind. Thanks!
  4. In Topic: Taking Turns in "Cootie" Game

    Posted 9 Sep 2013

    I've updated the program (in the Beetle Game class) and it still runs funny. The first roll goes without the user hitting enter and skips straight to player 2. Then the "roll count" is counting the total rolls of all players rather than for each specific one. Considering the die and roll methods are in seperate classes I don't see how this is happening. =/

    I have to confess that my brain started swimming a little as I tried to walk through your logic.

    This comes from a book, and while I've added a lot to it, the logic isn't really mine.

    The problem isn't necessarily incrementing the player so much as incrementing the object. Each player has their own "beetle" in which they are trying to build.
