C'de String Atama Sorunu

NoWeDoR

Cool Çırak
Arkadaşlar aşağıdaki programı çalıştırdıktan sonra ana menüden 1 girerek bir adet kayıt alıyorum kullanıcıdan. Atıyorum ad q soyad q numara 123123 olarak girilsin.

Daha sonra delete fonksiyonunu kullanarak (ana menüden 5 girerek) bu girdiğim kaydı silmek için oraya tekrar atama yapmak istiyorum. (Ad, soyad ve numara 0 degerine ya da NULL değerine eşit olsun diye uğraşıyorum) Ancak ne denediysem atamayı delete fonksiyonu içersinde bir türlü yapamadım. Kod satırlarında ((( deletE() fonksiyonunda ))) yaptığım atamalara (// olarak yorum satırlarında) bakabilirsiniz.

Acaba nasıl atama yapılmalı ?

Kod:
#include <stdlib.h>      // "stdlib" library contains of exit() function
#include <malloc.h>     // "malloc" library contains of malloc() function
#include <Windows.h>   // "Windows" library contains of Sleep() function which waits the system as you want
#include <io.h>       // "io" library contains of filelength() function
#include <string.h>  // "string" library contains of strlen() function
#include <stdio.h>  // "stdio" library contains of other functions which hasn't been mentioned
