Hey guys, iam assigned a program that has to read in 3 values (sides of triangles) at a time and find the area. The values have to be read from a file, they are in a loop as there can be as many sets of triangles as the user wishes, the area needs to be found and the results are output into a file. Oh, most of the features in the program need to be done through functions.

I have a program that compiles fine but it does not work. Can you find any mistake in this? :

Input (prog6_inp.txt): 10.2 6.5 8.1

10.0 10.0 10.0
