    }
        
}
In the above program in the main() function:-

in the line no 67 and 71.

what i m trying is to input is two character arrays :-
1. word
2. meaning

but i cannot use scanf();
as it only inputs till a space but i want to input till newline..

problems :-

1. the program only inputs the meaning and not the word.

2. the output when we reach that code is" Enter word to add: Meaning:"
and it will only input the meaning.

Please help with the code so that it works as expected and inputs both the arrays correctly.

Help!
