this the full code, which works like a charm, except for the error when i close the program. (a normal 'send report' / 'do not send report' error).
I've narrowed it down to one line (a variabele being read from a file -> posted in red), but can't seem to figure out what is wrong with it.

Fot those who should want to test it: first run this little thingy (code below) which creates random patients (after asking how many) and puts them inside a txt file.

thx

It would have been better if you would have just attached the txt file along with the post. It would save us the trouble of running one extra program esp so when the program is in a foreign langauge.. ;)

I'm confused. You claim

this the full code, which works like a charm...

which to me means it works without error. Then the sentence continues

except for the error when i close the program. (a normal 'send report' / 'do not send report' error).

which seems to mean is doesn't work. You then continue

I've narrowed it down to one line (a variabele being read from a file -> posted in red),

which is a line in the middle of the program, meaning the problem aborts long before the end of the program.

Very confusing. ;)

But the problem is easily explained...

In this code:

// creëren van patiënten variabelen
   struct ALLE_PATIENTENDATA patient[aantal_patienten];
 
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//  patientendata in variabelen steken en eventueel lijst opmaken
//------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
   //de patientengegevens uit bestand in variabelen omzetten
   for (count = 1; count <= aantal_patienten; count++)
   {
       fscanf (bestand_patienten, "%d", &patient[count].nummer);
       fscanf (bestand_patienten, "%d", &patient[count].discipline);
       fscanf (bestand_patienten, "%d", &patient[count].leeftijd);
       fscanf (bestand_patienten, "%s", &patient[count].naam);
   }

assume aantal_patienten is 5. That means patient is an array from 0 to 4. Your loop goes from 1 to 5 so you load patient[5] which doesn't exist. You've just blown you memory and crashed your program.

Also see this to see why the following is a bad idea:

system("PAUSE");

> #include <stdio.h>
> using namespace std;
So which is it - C or C++ ?
Pick a language and stick with it. If you try and walk down the middle of the road with C/C++, you'll just end up being road kill.

> struct ALLE_PATIENTENDATA patient[aantal_patienten];
Variable length array declarations are illegal in both languages. You must be relying on some compiler specific extension.

> for (count = 1; count <= aantal_patienten; count++)
You're also running off the end of the array, and trashing who knows what into the bargain (this is your crash, well one of them at least).
Given array[N]; the standard loop for the array is for ( i = 0 ; i < N ; i++ )

Variable length array declarations are illegal in both languages. You must be relying on some compiler specific extension.

I guess they are valid according to the C99 standard ( 6.7.5 ), but only when they have automatic storage duration....

We don't want that :cheesy: , i already removed all the c++, I think -> forgot the namespace. Thx.

I am using devc++ and when I declare 500 structures: struct ALLE_PATIENTENDATA patient[500], I have no problems filling a lot more structures. Don't ask me why. :lol:

Add these options to the compiler (in the project settings)
-W -Wall -ansi -pedantic -O2
that will make sure you don't use anything which isn't part of standard C
