scanf() will handle the input. To write to a file on disk, you must open a file and use fprintf()

char *nm = "Malicious";
FILE *nf;

/* open a file in the current working
directory named "names.txt" */
nf = fopen("names.txt", "w");
/* write a name to it */
fprintf(nf, "%s\n", nm);
/* close it */
fclose(nf);

Let me know when you need some more homework done. :-)
