Abnormal producer consumer problem driving me nuts

normally, i hate asking someone to do my homework for me but am getting desperate right now.
i have a project about consumer producer problem. the deadline is tonight at 23:55. but i havent gotten it working yet. i just COULDNT get it to work right yet.
the problem is as follows: the C - program will prompt for the following integer inputs:

Code:
m: the number of producer threads
n: the number of consumer threads
k: the size of the bounded buffer array
i: the number of candy items to be filled in each box

j: the number of candy items produced by each producer thread before it quits
now each producer thread produces a specific candy item, and each consumer thread takes an item out of the buffer one at a time. say producer1 produces red, prducer2 blue and so on.. as for consumer threads. after a given consumer thread has filled a given box; it prints the contents of the box as follows:
Consumer thread A filled a new box of candy containing: blue 3, red 7, green 8, ...

if you dont have the time to waste on beginngers' coding: atleast please hint out on how i should plan my work, because may be my problem is in the code structure. thanks
my head is now throbbing i can nolonger even think straight. anyhelp will be deeply appreciated. thanks in advance.
