>> char tmp[10];
tmp is too small -- increase to at least 20. Lets say I enter a string of 18 characters, the line tmp[len] = '\0'; will cause program crash.

[edit]Other than the above problem your program seems to work ok. I didn't check every line of the output, but the program spit out a whole bunch of lines.
