writing a program in C to calculate delta between two numbers

I'm a very new programmer.
I have a sorted file and want to calculate delats between the numbers. That is calculate the difference between first number in line 1 and second number in line 2 (delata1), difference number 3 in line 3 and number 2 in line 2(delta2), .... so on.
Then calculate mean of these deltas, variance, standard dev and then ratio standard dev to mean (stand dev/mean).
Can have any sample/example files.
Thanks for your help

Well, in order to do that, you'd have to read in the first 2 numbers, then subtract them and store this value into your delta array. You should have 2 integer values (for the two numbers to subtract) and an integer array (for the delta values). You can write a loop to continue finding delta values for the entire file, storing them into the array.

We are not allowed to write your homework for you, but if you try it and get stuck, we will help you if you post the portion of code that is returning the error, and explain what you have done to try to fix it.

Do you mean a sample file filled with numbers in ascending order? I think we can do that, since he'd still have to write all the code himself...
