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];
  3.  
  4. fread(text, sizeof text, 1, fin);
  5.  
  6. fclose(fin);
  7.  
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:
