> Yes, I asked this question poorly, my bad. My program is reading the file but it's duplicating desired lines for the total number the lines of the file (e.g 7 desired lines, printed 19 times - the total lines of file). How do I remove duplicate lines when reading the file (as it's in a while loop)?
This sounds like a simple coding problem (in your code), not a misunderstanding, or something strange, with C's semantics. There are no 'duplicate' lines. It's *your* code that's printing any duplicate (copies of) lines, so you'll need to follow the sequence of statements in your code to find out why. Break the problem down into small steps - what is printed (hopefully nothing) when reading a file containing *no* lines; what is printed in a file of just one comment-line, in a file with just one command-line, etc. Work out where the duplicate printing is happening.
