Can someone please help me convert the following code to C? I am just learning C and this is too overwhelming...

the java code basically reads in a file (specifically for this program, a text file or whatnot for assembly language code), and the program is a pretty printer which creates uniform columns between the assembly code, for example:

SENT:      .WORD       0      ; Initializes the...
pArray:    .BLOCK      20     ; Reserves space...                    
nArray:    .BLOCK      20     ; Reserves space...
indexP:    .WORD       0      ; Index Register...

Here is the java code (when running arguments, you define the file to be brought in and and integer representing the number of spaces for each column.

import java.util.Scanner;
   import java.io.File;
   import java.io.IOException;
 
    public class PrettyPrinter {
      final static String CommentDelimiter = ";";
      final static String LabelDelimiter = ":";
      final static String BLANK = " ";
      final static String Delimiters = " \t" + CommentDelimiter;
      static int spacing = 2;
   
       public static int MaxOf(int NewLength, int MaxLength) {
         if(NewLength > MaxLength) {
            return NewLength;
         } 
         else {
            return MaxLength;
         }
      }
   
       public static int MinOf(int NewI, int MinI) {
         if(NewI < MinI) {
            return NewI;
         } 
         else {
            return MinI;
         }
      }
   
       public static int indexOf(String Source, String Delimiters) {
         int result = Integer.MAX_VALUE;
         int loc;
         for (int i=0; i<Delimiters.length(); i++) {
            loc = Source.indexOf(Delimiters.charAt(i));
            result = MinOf(loc,result);
         }
         if(result == Integer.MAX_VALUE) result = -1;
         return result;
      }
   
       public static int lengthOf(String line, String delimiters, int max) {
         int result = max;
         int loc;
         loc = indexOf(line,delimiters);
         if(loc > 0) {
            max = MaxOf(loc,max);
            line = line.substring(loc+1);
         }
         return result;
      }

            S = S + BLANK;

       public static String rtrim(String S) {
