file-read – Reading from files

Write a program that reads a name from the text file name.txt. If the file does not exist, your program should print name.txt: file not found. If the file does exist, your program should print the first word found in the file.

Reading from files

Here is an example command line session:

$ ls
$ ./file-read
name.txt: file not found
$ echo Mary > name.txt
$ ./file-read

The name given in the test input is no longer than 60 characters and may be followed by a line break in the name.txt file.



Depending on the language you are using you may have to strip any trailing line break after reading from the name.txt file.
