I'm programing in c, in the first part of the program I write data to a file, using fopen() and fclose(). In the second part I am trieng to read the file, again, using fopen() and fclose() in reading mode. the program start reading from the last raw. using rewind() does not help. how can I start reading data from begining of file?

Maybe fscanf() will help, try it.

Thank you
fscanf() &fprintf() is whatIm doing. still I think it has to do with rewind(), as if the rewind() take me back to the last raw instead to the begining of the file.

try using fseek instead of rewind, it will give an error indication if it can't set the file pointer to the start of the file. Additionally you need to make sure you have opened the file to read in the correct mode.
