char *gets(char *str);

Reads a line from stdin and stores it into the string pointed to by str. It stops when either the newline character is read or when the end-of-file is reached, whichever comes first. The newline character is not copied to the string. A null character is appended to the end of the string.

On success a pointer to the string is returned. On error a null pointer is returned. If the end-of-file occurs before any characters have been read, the string remains unchanged.
