QuestionC Programming code to build an echo varient that hopefully can be used in WinXP Pin

Sorry for the cryptic nature of this question just trying to condense as much as I can.

I am trying to write a program in "C" which has a twist on the normal echo command in XPSP3
XP echo does not allow you to remove EOL characters when you redirect into text file with the >
I think they call it CRLF. However in my wanderings I have come across some "C" code that I think could compile a useful program. Here is some background info to illustrate:
The program that I hope to use would be called ECO.COM would be commandline for usage in CMD
ECO would be furnished with a flag (-X) that would give the user the choice to include the CRLF removal or would just be used just like echo command in XP without the -X flag. The ECO.COM file would be restricted to one line (80 Chars) long so the following could take place. The user could type for example
ECO.COM -X SET VARIABLE= (the ECO.COM would have with the -X flag to strip out the end CRLF so once the
SET VARIABLE= line was ridected to text file could easily be appended (>>) with a second ECO command or text file all on the same line. The resultant Text file could then be renamed to a .CMD file & called from another batch file thus setting the given %Variable%
I think they call it backticks or command substitution or some call it back quotes anyway here is the code which I have sought & tried to compile to create ECO.COM/EXE but it is not working can someone assist to make it work Please I think it would be very useful alternative to SET/P option in XPCMD?Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

       /* setting flag to remove crlf */
int main()
{
for (i = 1; i < argc; i++) {

            /* Check for a switch (leading "-"). */

        if (argv[i][0] == '-') {

            /* Use the next character to decide what to do. */

            switch (argv[i][1]) {

                case 'x':
                        printf("flag a was called\n");
                        break;

        }
    }
}

        /* part of script that echos 80 chars on one line */

int echo()
{
    char input[80];
    while(fgets(input, 80, STDIN)){  //read from STDIN (aka command-line)
        printf("%s\n", input);  //print out what user typed in
        memset(input, 0, strlen(input));  //reset string to all 0's

    return 1;
}

        /*  go to exit if the user enters -x flag */

      if (*char == -x) {
         goto remit;

      else

      if (*char == " ") {
         goto exit;
}
             /* remove carriage returns from one line /*


         remit;
int main()
{
    const char *remove_any_of = "\n\r";
    int c;
    while((c = getchar()) != EOF) {
        if (!strchr(remove_any_of, c)) putchar(c);

         exit;

    return 0;
}
