read file example
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
puts("Reading File");
FILE *fp; // file pointer to data file
fp = fopen ("data.txt", "r");
FILE *stream;
char *line = NULL;
size_t len = 0;
ssize_t read;
fp = fopen("data.txt", "r");
while ((read = getline(&line, &len, fp)) != -1) {
printf("%s", line);
/// getline allocates memory for you using 'realloc' internally
// notice i can pass it a NULL char *
// now parse the comma delimated line w/ strtok
char *token = strtok (line,",");
char * dest = NULL;
while (token != NULL) {
printf("Parsed %s\n", token);
token = strtok (NULL, ",");
return 0;
