I want to read from a file which contains interger ,
 I want to compare the line and print the line with highest value .

I will appreciate if you can show me the few step with code ?
looking forward to hear from you


What I have tried:

#include <stdio.h>

#include <stdlib.h>

char lineHandler(s);

int main()

int count  =  1  ;
char  store_output[100]   ;
char store_each_line[100]  ;
FILE *patht  = fopen("inputNumber.txt", "r");
char myText[100];

// Use a while loop together with the get line function to read the file line by line

  while (! feof(patht)) {

        fgets(myText, 100, patht);

   // Output the text from the file

char  cal_rec  =   lineHandler(myText)  ;
store_output[count]  = cal_rec  ;

//store each line

store_each_line[count]   =  myText  ;


  // Close the file


// the calculation  here

int max_get[2];
int count_e   = 0;
for(count_e = 0; count_e > sizeof(store_output) / sizeof(store_output[0]); count_e++)
if(max_get[0]  <  store_output[count_e]   && max_get[0]  !=  store_output[count_e] ){
max_get[0]   =   store_output[count_e];
max_get[1]   =  count_e;



printf("the highest is  %s", store_each_line[max_get[1]]);

char lineHandler(s)

//array just for calcualtion

printf(" %s", s);
double  arr[3];

	strtok(s, " ");
char word;
int count_pos = 0 
	while (s >> word) {
         arr[count_pos] = word;

        //push it into an array file  here not print


double  calt   = (arr[0] * arr[0] )  +  arr[1]  +  arr[2];

    return calt;

You should reformat your code to remove all the unnecessary blank lines, and use standard indentation, so it is at least readable.

You also need to explain what error you get and where it occurs.

If you want someone to help you fix an error, then you need to tell us what the error is.

Click the green "Improve question" link and update your question to include the full details of the error you are getting.

Word to the wise - treat compiler warnings as if they are errors and fix them before trying to run your program. For example you have declared
double lineHandler(char s);
but when you call it you are passing it a pointer to a char array

I tried to change the data type still getting the same error
CHill60 21-Jun-21 12:12pm
There was more than one warning produced when I compiled your code. Fix them all, starting with the first one, then recompile, then fix the next first one, and so on until you get a clean compilation.
Don't just randomly change one line - did you also change the body of the function or just the declaration?

I had follow CHILL60 instruction is working fine but not yet getting my result.

Here is what I want to work on.

I read from a file which contains interger , I want to compare the line and print the line with highest value .

I will appreciate if you can show me the few step with code ?

DO NOT post your update as a "solution" to your question!
Richard MacCutchan 24-Jun-21 4:32am
The solution is to go back to your course notes and study them in detail. You are mixing data types at random and missing declarations. For example:
char lineHandler(s) // you need to tell the function what type 's' is expected to be.

// no point in even looking at the rest of the code 

double  calt   = (arr[0] * arr[0] )  +  arr[1]  +  arr[2];

    return calt; // your declaration says this function returns a char, but you are trying to return a double
can you help me figure it out ?

This is not a solution.
obafemi Davprince 22-Jun-21 2:52am
what are the solution. jeron1

Maybe, if you explain what the error is. Have you followed CHill60's suggestions?
