as the first question of mine if you could stil remember :
I would like to improve and make a few changes..
my requirement is to change this program into the last one you made for me...
compare name with datafile (names.dat) and then print the name matches and then return number of matched names...get ird of the output header and all information like death date, marriage, last name , first name..only keep name to compare with datafile...(anyway you would understand this easily since it's eaxtly the same requirements as you have done be4)
p.s. I need to think for a good requirement to challenge your skill :) and i would be deluighted if you coud move your position of expert to second ^_^
hope to see your pix one day wining expert of the month heheheh
