To further explain my issue, I have attached the C ptogram I'm using along with two test files. Testdata1.txt contains very large strings and is easily read by the c program. However bulkfile.txt (which is the file I need to read) cannot be read sucessfully. I think this is down to some funny characters in the file but I'm at a loss to be honest.

Please help!!!!
