Hi,

Consider the following piece of code:
                            FILE *fp;
                            fp = fopen("myfile.dat","r");
    Now fp points to  what?
        1. The first character in the file.
        2. A structure which contains a char pointer  which points to the first character in the file.
        3. The name of the file.                                

Thanx.
