Fetching string input

Fetching string input: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems
Fetching string input: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems

String input can be accomplished by using the scanf() or fgets() functions. The scanf() function is limited in that it stops reading after the first whitespace character. Buffer overflow is also an issue with scanf(). The fgets() function limits text input but it also includes a newline character in the buffer.
