Name
       gets, fgets - get a string from a stream

Syntax
       #include <stdio.h>

       char *gets(s)
       char *s;

       char *fgets(s, n, stream)
       char *s;
       int n;
       FILE *stream;

Description
       The routine reads a string into s from the standard input stream stdin.
       The string is terminated by a newline character, which is replaced in s
       by a null character.  The routine returns its argument.

       The  routine reads n-1 characters, or up to a newline character, which‐
       ever comes first, from the stream into the string s.  The last  charac‐
       ter  read  into s is followed by a null character.  The routine returns
       its first argument.

Restrictions
       The routine deletes a newline, while keeps it.

Diagnostics
       The and routines return the constant pointer NULL upon end of  file  or
       error.
