Hi I was hoping that maybe someone could help me with a small piece of C code. I have a number of files, which are all of similar layout ie. three lines of text and 5-6 columns of numerical data. I need to add each of the elements of the second column in one file to their counterparts in the second column of the other file. I must add them in the ratio of 3:1 so I also need to multiply one column by a scalar. So I need to extract the files (into an array?), manipulate the data, add the array elements into a new array, and return this as a file. I think. Any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated as this problem is really holding me up. Thanks very much.
