For some reason when I pass wordCounter into this function, and print it out for test purposes, it returns the value 0. The parameter int wordCounter is initialized to 0 before this function is encountered, so im guessing the loop simply does not execute, but why?
Actually returning an int instead of passing it back through the params seems like the best way to do something here. Counting newlines will break something else cause this function seems to also be used to load the words into the wordArray.
int loadWords(FILE* inputFile,char *wordArray)
Ah okay, very good idea, but I'm actually having trouble reading the words in from the start...
I went back to trace through step by step, and it seems they never even read in properly,
even though the commands that I am doing are correct.
It also appears that the text file deletes each time I test the executable, and by this I mean
that the file's contents are simply blank after each run. I have no idea why. I opened, I closed,
added a bunch of printf("%s");
Hm... This is definately some tricky code, but I will try !fgets() when and if I get the input
streaming to work.
