What is your code doing or not doing that you want changed?
What is a sample of the data in the text file?

I need to read a text file, i.e. "hello world, how are you doin" line 31.

i need to output it to the console as characters of "text" so i can grab it.

gets(text);
textLength = strlen(text);
