fprintf( ): This function sends formatted output to a stream. It accepts a series of arguments, apply to each argument a format specifier contained in the format string * format. This function applies the first format specifier to the first argument, the second specifier to the second argument… till the end of the format.

fscanf(): This function is similar to scanf() function. It scans a series of input fields one character at a time. Store the formatted input at an address passed as an argument following * format. This function might stop scanning a particular field before it reaches the normal end-of-field (while space) character, or it might terminate entirely.
