This topic is really new to me, i was just reading some stuff ahead of my class and saw a practisable question. However i have started it and stuck here. See question below.

QUESTION

You are required to create a student management system that will allow you to store and
update student records. Each student record should consist of an id, a name (fist name
and last name), date of birth, address, telephone number and the program being pursued.
Assume 10 records will be stored.
1. Create and populate an array of records. Store records into file
2. Allow user to update a record. Note, the user should only manipulate the data
structure. All changes to the data structure should then be use to overwrite the
file.
3. Allow user to search for a record from the data structure.
4. Print all records from the structure.
NB. The students should create appropriate functions to solve the problem.

Three Questionss
1. Why when it is printed i get rubbish?
2. When i search for the ID, how can i display the entire information for that ID?
3. Im lost to how i am suppose to update the file
4. Is the loading function done correctly
