The program lets the user be the customer, banker, or supervisor, and all of their privileges involve structs. I made an array of 100 structs for 100 potential customers, and I need to do something similar for banking.

I'm trying to put customer and banker's info detailed in that struct into a list on a text file that opens at the program startup, reads from it, writes to it, etc...otherwise users need to remake their account EVERY time they use the program

I need help finishing that part, and any additional stuff would be fan-TAST-ic...

Everything to do with file I/O, the struct

struct customerInfo{ char firstName[20]; char lastName[20]; float amount; AccountType type;};

is how I want object in the file to be stored as, e.g.

"Carol Burns
$423.04
Checking

Brandon Jay
$0.01
Credit" etc...

The trouble is reading from/writing to these abnoxious files
