I am trying to write a utility that will get a line of input from stdin, and when the return key is pressed, do some processing on what was enterd.  Then, get another line and so on until cntl-d is pressed by the user.

How would I implement something like this in c??

#include <stdio.h>
main(){
  char line[1000];
  /*system("stty eof \004");*/
  while( !feof(stdin) ){
    if( fgets(line,999,stdin) ){ printf("process:%s",line); }
  }
}

The code given by ozo will work but you cannot over come some intrupts like cntrl+c , cntrl+z which are abort signals send to the process.

If you want code to overcome ctrl-c, ctrl-z, just ask.
If you want to overcome SIGABRT, just ask for that too.
