    Hello,

    I am really new to writing C code. I am generally written Java code all my life, so I am struggling with C code as this is the second program I am writing in C.

    I am trying to read a txt file that has numbers in the format of

    12
    145
    156
    1263
    1342
    1642

    I am trying to read these in and storing them into my array. I tried two different ways, but it's not working. The loop just runs forever and prints 0s and random values.


    while((fscanf(file, "%d\n", &allInstructs[count]) != EOF))
    {
    printf("Running %d\n", allInstructs[count]);
    count++;
    }
    Thanks again!

    The code you have shown looks file to me. Make sure that you initialise count to zero before you start the loop.
