Your question history indicates that you are in the process of learning C.
I would be glad to help you code this piece but I wont code it for you.

Also, you should consider managing your open questions and grading history ... 9 Bs out of 10 certainly dont look very encouraging.

Paul - I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE ON DELETING COMMENTS WITHOUT MENTIONING THAT to the others.

As I side note: I'll ask the admins about that conduct, since not only it is impolite and rude, but also unfair and IMO not justified. Not to speak of professionality here.
