 if((fp= fopen("zzz.txt", "w")) == NULL){
        gotoxy(10,10);printf("Error!!");
        exit(1);  
 }
 i=10;

ive tested it in VC++ 5 and its fine. the only thing i had to take out was the gotoxy's and clrscr as they are not supported in conio.h..when ever i used to use gotoxy i always used cout<< or printf not putc, whever this makes any difference i dont know ?. what ive put bellow should be fine in borland and VC++.

write to file :

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>

main()
{

FILE *fp;

 char ch;
 int i;

 if((fp= fopen("d:\\examples\\c_test_area\\zzz.txt", "w")) == NULL){
        printf("Error!!");
        exit(1);  
 }
 i=10;
 do{  
   ch= getchar();
   putc(ch, fp);
   i++;
 }while(ch!='\n');
  fclose(fp);  
 return(0);
}

read from file :
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <dos.h>

main(){
 FILE *fp;
 char ch;
 int i;

 if((fp= fopen("d:\\examples\\c_test_area\\zzz.txt", "r")) == NULL){
     printf("Error");
     exit(1);  
 }
 else{
  i=10;
 do{

  ch= getc(fp);
  putchar(ch);
  i++;
 }while(ch!= EOF);
 fclose(fp);
};

return(0);
}

The only thing I can see offhand is the undeclared file open mode, try opening and closing the files with "r+t" and "w+t".
