Hi,

I am trying to implement the following code. I am able to run the code on unix using ctrl-d for end of file for gets() but I am not able to figure out how to stop gets() from taking any input on windows 98 as ctrl-d doesn't seem to work or I cannot find the end of file indicator. I am using MS Visual C++ 6.0 compiler. Any hepl will be appreciated

Regards,
Sid

#include <stdio.h>
#include "lists.h"
int main ( ) {
     char word[100];
     printf ("Collecting names into a list.\n");
     struct ListNode * list = newList ( );
     while (gets(word)) {
     list = cons (word, list);
     }
     printf ("Printing the names in the list.\n");
     print (list);
     return 0;
}

YOU CAN IGNORE THE CODE BELOW

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include "lists.h"

struct ListNode  /* You supply this definition. */
     {
     char *name;   /* points to the name */
    struct ListNode *next; /*next list */
     };
/* Return an empty linked list. */
struct ListNode * newList ( ) {
return 0;
}


/* Return the result of adding the given string to the front of the given list. */
struct ListNode * cons (char *s, struct ListNode * list) {
/* You supply the body of this function. */
     struct ListNode *newnode;
     newnode =(struct ListNode *) malloc(sizeof(ListNode)) ; //allocate memory from heap
     newnode->name =s; // point the name to the new string
     newnode->next =list; // set next pointer to list;
     list=newnode;  // update list to get it ready for the next iteration
     return newnode;
     }
/* Print the names in the given linked list, one per line. */

void print (struct ListNode * list) {
if (list != 0) {
printf ("%s\n", list->name);
print (list->next);
}
}

Try using Ctrl-Z as an EOF indicator.
