Hi all,

         I want to read from file and assing to variable in int format. For that i wrote bellow mentioned code.

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

int main(void)
   FILE *stream;
   char string[] = "Th";
   char *ch="10";
  int  p=0;
  stream = fopen("DUMMY.TXT", "r");
   fseek(stream, 0, SEEK_SET);
    fgets(ch, strlen(string), stream);
   return 0;

it's working fine individually. but when i put it in another file out of which i am making dll then when i am
running it it gives sharing acess violation in fgets function.

       Can any one help me is there any other logic when making dll of it?

Thanks in advace,

Make your mind up!

> stream = fopen("DUMMY.TXT", "r");
Follow this with
if ( stream == NULL ) {
    perror( "Unable to open file" );
    return;  /* or some other error action */

> fseek(stream, 0, SEEK_SET);
Kinda reduntant, since and "r" opened file starts at the beginning anyway

  char string[] = "Th";
  char *ch="10";
string isn't used (except for its length), and the memory which ch points to can't be modified (this is your access violation).

Use this
char buff[BUFSIZ];
if ( fgets( buff, BUFSIZ, stream ) != NULL ) {
    p = atoi( buff );

Though using strtol() in place of atoi() would permit better error checking

I think I will decline to answer until you've addressed the issue raised by Gula.

And my psychic ability tells me exactly what you did wrong.
Post your latest code and new question!

There's no point you offering points if you've no intention of completing the process.

If the answer helps you past whatever problem you have then it's an acceptable answer in my opinion.
