Help with find highest and smallest number in a file with c

Input file:
Desired result:
code that I try but failed to archive my goal
When reading the input file, calculate the length of each "#".
From the above input file, the length is 4,3,7,1.
Thus, highest number is 7 and smallest is 1.
Many thanks for any advice

Try this.
There are more elegant ways of doing this but I have kept it simple and omitted boundary checks and suchlike so that you should be able to understand the logic.

Thanks, fpmurphy
Your program work fine
I just a bit confusing about the following code, need your advice:
Can I know what is the logic and explanation that you decide to set it as "-1"?
Will your program give difference length calculation if the length content "\n" or "\r"?
eg.
Many thanks again
