This question doesn't readdy make sense without more detail

1. Open the file with fopen
2. Read it with fread
3. Close the file with fclose

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. FILE fin = fopen( "FileName.txt", "r");
  2. char text[100];
  4. fread(text, sizeof text, 1, fin);
  6. fclose(fin);
Of course that code has no error handling.

Perhaps you missed my answers to the same question which you asked yesterday.

Regarding the inappropriate use of fread() for csv files:

and regarding separating fields in a csv file using fgets() and strtok()

Greetings, I need to read (unformatted text) from stdin up to EOF into a char buffer; of course I cannot allocate my buffer until I know how much text is available, and I do not know how much text is available until I have read it... which seems to imply that multiple reads of the input stream will be inevitable. Now I can correctly...
