because i feel more at home here than at stackoverflow.
so for instance, on windows command line i'll type in
int get_input(char input)
printf("value=%d",value); /*when Anything with a space at the start or more than one space elsewhere is entered it causes the program to crash before getting here.*/
(ie. four spaces in front of the first what, three between the two words and three after that.
and it just freezes up and i need to ctrl+c out.
on linux command line it at least gives me more than that. it gives me a segmentation fault.
i assume the problem has to do with all those spaces being turned into newline characters or something, but i thought i'd try to get confirmation on that before i go ripping this up and trying to think of another solution.
