while((fgets(receiving array,50,file_ptr)!=EOF);

How this while is executed?

This is what my help files say about fgets return value...

char *fgets(char *s, int size, FILE *stream);

gets() and fgets() return s on success, and NULL on error or when end
of file occurs while no characters have been read.

>>How this while is executed?
Its an infinite loop because fgets() never returns EOF. fgets() returns NULL when it reaches end-of-file
