Hey guys.  A friend of mine lent me a C programming book because I was interested and Ive been doin pretty well so far until I stumbled upon a program involving structures.  I basically have to create a database.  Ive read examples but can't seem to grasp it.  Heres the problem:

Write statements that accomplish each of the following.  Assume that the structure:

struct person {
     char lastname [15];
     char firstname [15];
     char age [4];
};
 has been defined and that the file is already open for writing.
                a)Initialize the file "nameage.dat" so that there are 100 records with lastname = "unassigned", firstname = ""            and age = "0".
                b)Input 10 last names, first names, and ages, and write them to the file.
                c)Update the record.  If no record tell the user "no info".
                d)Delete a record that has data by reinitializing that particular record.

Nope. Been out of school for a year now. Does it matter if it is?
