Hi,

Maybe I misunderstand your question, but do you need this code?

#include <stdio.h>

main()
      {
            FILE *in;
            float f;

            if ( (in = fopen("DATA.TXT", "rt")) == NULL ){
                  fprintf( stderr, "Cannot open input file.\n");
                  return 1;
            }

            while (!feof(in)){
                  if ( fscanf( in, "%f", &f )) printf( "The float read was: %f\n", f );
            }
            fclose(in);
            return 0;
      }

slight modification:

int main(void)
{
FILE *infile;
float f;

if ( (infile = fopen("DATA.TXT", "rt")) == NULL ){
fprintf( stderr, "Cannot open input file.\n");
return -11;
}

while (!feof(infile)){
if ( fscanf( infile, "%f\n", &f )) printf( "The float read was: %f\n", f );
}
fclose(in);
return 0;
}

thanks for quoting toannds and me!
that's a pretty low way to swipe points for an answer that is not really yours!

MaDdUCKCommented:
why did you accept his answer? toannds was supposed to get the points and ATucker misbehaved a lot by plagiarising him/her.

ATucker: that's so low, but if you need the points that much! Fortunately not all experts here are like you!

Didn't mean to offend anyone, MadDuck.  I just noticed that there were only comments and no answers yet, so I answered it as best I could.  Sorry if you feel like I stole your points.

If you felt your response was a solution, why didn't you propose it as an answer instead of a comment?

MaDdUCKCommented:
I usually add comments first to keep the question open. If the poster feels that I answered it then I will answer it later. This is the best way I think.

Anyway, I accept your apology, although it should go out to toannds who really answered it. I just corrected his/her response.
