    Hi there,

    I am working on a project where I need to change the extension of file using C. For example I want to change a ".dat" file and write it in the form of ".txt" file.

    Can someone help me with this. I will be very thankful.

    ,,,

    C doesn't care about file extensions.

    Code:
    FILE *in = fopen("file.dat","rb");
    FILE *out= fopen("file.txt","w");
    
    Then you can do whatever you want to read from the .dat file, and write to the .txt file.
