Write a program that takes an integer keyed in from the terminal and extracts and displays each digit of the integer in English. For example if the user type in 780, Seven Eight Zero will be displayed on the screen.(Without using pointers)

Try this programm:
#include <stdio.h>
int main(int argb, char *argv[])
{
   unsigned number;
   char buffer[100];
   int i;
   
   scanf ("%u", &number);
   sprintf (buffer, "%u", number);
   for (i=0;i<strlen(buffer);i++) {
      switch (buffer[i]) {
          case '0':
            printf ("Zero ");
          break;  
          case '1':
          printf ("One ");
          break;  
          case '2':
          printf ("Two ");
          break;  
          case '3':
          printf ("Three ");
          break;  
      case '4':
          printf ("Four ");
      break;  
      case '5':
          printf ("Five ");
      break;  
      case '6':
          printf ("Six ");
      break;  
      case '7':
          printf ("Seven ");
      break;  
      case '8':
          printf ("Eight ");
      break;  
      case '9':
          printf ("Nine ");
      break;  
       }
   }
   printf ("\n");
   return 0;
   
}

If you want to parse longer integer numbers just read it directly in the buffer by using scanf ("%s",buffer);

Where do I use pointers? The only pointer I need is in the scanf function and there you must use a pointer.

Please explain me exactly what you want.
