I'm not sure if this is the correct place to receive help on a project that has stumped me, but I am going anywhere I can for possible help. The project is to be written in C language. If this isn't the place for these kind of posts, please, let me know!
Welcome! Yes: it is definitely the right place to get help with your homework! Everyone will be happy to assist you with specific questions like: I have A and B and I expect it to produce C, but it produces D. But don't expect anyone to do the homework here for you.
