warning: unused variable `fp'
Even though I am using the fp variable
 fp=fopen("Reader.xml", "rb");
fgets(Buff, sizeof(Buff), fp);
Anyone know why...

Try turning off optimization, soemtimes the compiler is too clever.

Also make sure that code is reachable, and not accidentally in a comment or #ifdef or a if( 0 )

Hi sudarshantk,

FILE * fp; // Will cause a warning.

...

{
  FILE *fp;
  ...
  fp=fopen("Reader.xml", "rb");
  fgets(Buff, sizeof(Buff), fp);
 
}

Perhaps you could post a little more code.

FILE *fp=NULL;

Simply , the code is unreachable. That might happen in several ways.
1) You may be returning well before fopen.
2) You might not be calling the function which was not called at all.
3) As above said by grg99
