// include
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>

// add the prototype of gets to avoid the warning extern function
char *gets(char *dst); 

// define the user data type (Customer)
typedef struct{
 // define the members 
	char name[30]; 
	char phone[10]; 
	int age; 

} Customer; 

// define a function

void printCustomer(Customer c){
	printf("Name: %s\n Phone: %s\n age: %d\n",,,c.age ); 

// a function to load data from a text file so that
// each record uses a line and the space is the delimiter ( separates the fields)
void load( char filename[10], Customer customers[]){
	// creating a temporary variable for holding a record 
	char tmpName[30];
	char tmpPhone[10];
	int tmpAge;
	int counter;

	// declare a file pointer
	FILE *input= fopen(filename, "r+");

	//check if the file opened succesfully
    if (input==NULL)
		perror ("Error opening file");
		// continue in reading the file til the EOF
			strcpy(tmpName," ");
			fscanf(input, "%s %s %d", tmpName,tmpPhone,&tmpAge);
			if(strcmp(tmpName," ")!=0){
int main(int argc, char *argv[]){
	// defined an array for holding data of two customers
	Customer myCustomers[2];
	//intialize the age of all customers to -1. 
	// this intialization enables us to determine if data
	// are loaded or not
    for(int i=0; i<2; i++)myCustomers[i].age=-1;
	// get the input from the file cust.txt
	char myFileName[10]="cust.txt"; 
	load(myFileName, myCustomers);


	//prints the data loaded 
	for(int i=0; i<2;i++){
