Loading File And Printing the Result Using Arrays C


In this example I will be showing how to load a file and printing the result in the console using arrays.


#ifdef _MSC_VER
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdbool.h>

typedef struct{
	char FirstName[30];
	char LastName[30];
	char Nationality[30];
	float Result;
} Athletes;

void printAtheletes(Athletes a[],double result){
	for (int i = 1; i < 42; i++){
		if (a[i].Result >= result){
			printf("%s \t %s \t %s \t %d \n", a[i].FirstName,a[i].LastName,a[i].Nationality[i],a[i].Result);

bool loadAtheletes(char fileName[10], Athletes myAthletes[]){
	char tempFirstName[30];
	char tempLastName[30];
	char tempNationality[30];
	float tempResult;
	int counter;

	FILE *input = fopen(fileName, "r+");

	//check if the file opened succesfully
	if (input == NULL){
		//perror("Error opening file");
		return false;
	} else {
		counter = 0;
		// continue in reading the file til the EOF
		while (!feof(input)){
			strcpy(tempFirstName, " ");
			fscanf(input, "%s %s %s %d", tempFirstName, tempLastName, tempNationality,&tempResult);
			if (strcmp(tempFirstName, " ") != 0){
				strcpy(myAthletes[counter].FirstName, tempFirstName);
				strcpy(myAthletes[counter].LastName, tempLastName);
				strcpy(myAthletes[counter].Nationality, tempNationality);
				myAthletes[counter].Result = tempResult;
		return true;		

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
	Athletes myAtheletes[41];
	double str1;
	char myFileName[10] = "cust.txt";
	if (loadAthletes(myFileName,myAtheletes)){
		printf("The data are loaded successfully.");
		printf("Entrer a distance:\n");
		scanf("%d", &str1);
		getchar(); //Clean the buffer
		for (int i = 1; i < 42; i++){
		printf("We could not open the file.");
	return 0;
