How do I match the "{" with "}"

This is to math the loop begin and end.

You use strcspn() or strbrk() to find the '{'s and '}'s, and you use a

stack construct (either indirectly, through recursion, or directly,

using, say, a linked list) to determine which '}' belongs to which '{'.

If you want to know how, the simplest way of figuring out an algorithm

is, as so often, to sit down behind a piece of paper, copy down a random

formula with such brackets in it, and observe how you yourself match

them up.

There is a command/short cut (say ALT F5)

ISO C does not guarantee that you even have Alt or F5 keys, let alone

that you can read them.
