Just read until scanf returns zero or EOF.

You can do it in one statement only using scanf()
scanf("%[^\n]s",&a_string);

The function will read input until a '\n' is detected. Put any thing you want at the place of n like A,Q or blank character, '\x0' The string will be read until that char is encountered.
