You need to look at the manpage of strtok as it will spilt up each line based on the field delimiter...which in this case will be a space character and post how the output should look like...

#include <stdio.h> 

int DisplayFile(char filename[]) 
    FILE *f; 
    int     ch;  /* int or signed char. See below. */ 
    f = fopen(filename, "r"); 
    if (f == NULL) { 
        /* Couldn't open the file. */ 
        printf("Input file not found.\n"); 
        return -1; /* Non-zero means error. */ 
    /* Display the entire file on the screen */ 
    ch = fgetc(f); 
    while (ch != EOF) 
        ch = strtok(filename, " ");
        putchar(ch);  /* Display one char on screen */ 
        ch = fgetc(f); 
    return 0; 
int main(void) 
    int   result; 
    result = DisplayFile("fadata.rtf");
