Hello Guys,
I am trying to read lines from .xml file using a C program.
Basically what program does is read the date, and if the current system date is in the range of the date range given, it fetches some data from the next lines in the date.

However,my program is only reading till 240.
I am using fgets function to read line by line till I find the date.
When I find a date, I compare it and if in range, fetch the data below that date.

The program works perfectly till 240 lines, but after that its just terminating itself.
The date after the date on the 240th line is the one it should fetch data for.
So I made the program output every line it was reading and the program terminates on 240th line. But if I change the date of the 240th line to be valid, it still fetches the data perfectly.

#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <ctype.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <math.h>
	
FILE *fh;	
char line[200]; 
int num_start[3],num_end[3];

// Fetch function fetches the data below the date, if the date is valid.

int fetch(int Day, int Month, int Year)
{
	char email1[20],email2[20];
	while(fgets(line, sizeof(line),fh))
	{
		if(line[2]=='<' && line[3]=='j' && line[4]=='u' && line[5]=='m' && line[6]=='p')
		break;
	}
	
	int k=0;
	int b1=0;
	int b2=0;
	while(line[k]!='\0')
	{
		if(line[k]=='(')
		{
			b1=k;
		}
		else if(line[k]==')')
		{
			b2=k;
		}
		k++;
	}

        int c=0;
	int d=0;
	printf("E-Mail 1 = ");
	for(c=b1+1;c<b2;c++)
	{
		email1[d]=line[c];
		printf("%c",email1[d]);
		d++;
	}
	email1[d]='\0';
	printf("\n");
	
	while(fgets(line, sizeof(line),fh))
	{
		if(line[2]=='<' && line[3]=='j' && line[4]=='u' && line[5]=='m' && line[6]=='p')
		break;
	}

	k=0;
	b1=0;
	b2=0;

	while(line[k]!='\0')
	{
		if(line[k]=='(')
		{
			b1=k;
		}
		else if(line[k]==')')
		{
			b2=k;
		}
		k++;
	}

	c=0;
	d=0;
	printf("E-Mail 2= ");
	for(c=b1+1;c<b2;c++)
	{
		email2[d]=line[c];
		printf("%c",email2[d]);
		d++;
	}
	email2[d]='\0';
	printf("\n");
	
	

return 0;

int main(int argc, char * argv[])
{

if(argc < 2)
	{
	printf("Need file name.\n");
	return -1;
	}


fh=fopen(argv[1] , "r");
	
if(fh==NULL)
	{
	printf("Cannot open file.\n");
	return -1;
	}

read_file();

fclose(fh);
return 0;
}

I am using Ubuntu's integrated GCC compiler to compile and then run.

Is there any limitation that a program can only read 240 lines from a file?

Thanks.
