A complete noob facing issues in Challenge #1

+1 Rafidul Islam · February 17, 2015
Okay so, I only stepped into my first programming language tutorials about two weeks ago. Starting with C with Bucky's tutorials, I watched till No.33 and tried the challenge. I told myself I won't carry on with the lessons until I completed it, and I seem to be going nowhere. Here's the code I wrote: http://pastebin.com/1H8Axq8X

The program runs, but it keeps saying the password does not meet the standards even when it does. As I said before, I'm completely new to programming, so I'm sure I made some mistake somewhere or I'm using a function in the wrong way. I'd really appreciate if someone showed me the code that worked for them and point out my mistakes here.

I'm glad you took the time to read through my code and point out the faults there. You also seem to have pointed out stuff I didn't quite learn to do yet. Nevertheless, I'll be taking your tips into account.

Also, I think I'll reconsider. I might just try the next tutorials now or try some other sources to learn the basics again before moving on from here. I appreciate your help.

You mean K&R? Yeah I collected that book along with two others, 'C Primers Plus' and 'C Programming A Modern Approach'. I'm thinking of trying multiple sources to see which one works best for me. 

K&R seems to emphasize more on the 'how-to-do' and teaching the syntax for stuff. I just might need that first, thankyou. 
I'll certainly ask around here if I have any confusions.
