how do I read in a string from a file as a charactor array and then reverse the letters of each word ? e.g.

if the file contained :

This is a test
This is a test2

you would read in "This is a test" as a charactor array then reverse the letters to say "sihT si a tset" then read in the second line and reverse those letters as well.

1. open the file (fopen in file.h)

2. while not at the end of the file
i) read a line in to a character array (fread in file.h)
ii) use _strrev (most compilers have this, possibly without the leading underscore)in string.h to reverse the string

3. close the file (fclose in file.h)

A C answer to a C++ question?  Duh...

STL makes the solution trivial.  Create a vector<string>, fill it using istream_iterators, use the for_each() function to invoke the reverse() function on all the strings in the vector.
