C | Input and Output | Question 8
Which of the following is true
gets() doesn\’t do any array bound testing and should not be used.
fgets() should be used in place of gets() only for files, otherwise gets() is fine
gets() cannot read strings with spaces
None of the above
Use of gets() generates the risk of an overflow of the allocated buffer. This happens because the function gets(), doesn\’t know the size of the buffer, and continues reading until it finds a newline \”\\n\” or encounters EOF, and so it may overflow the bounds of the buffer it was given.
See gets() is risky to use!
