There isn't any specific function for that, you will have write code for that. The best routine which i suggest for that is to use getchar and some loops.

Dont use scanf to read a string.

Have a go with this hints. post a message if u are stuck

You can't but since getchar only reads 1 char at a time you will need a loop to read a whole string.
