[Code] User Counter

        I'm having some trouble with the folloing function, and would
appreciate some assistance with it.

        According to my ansi-c primer, the syntax and implementation seem
to be correct, however the user counter never goes above 2.  Anyone see
something obvious, that I've overlooked?

void user_cntr(struct descriptor_data *d)
FILE *uc_fp;
long u_cnt = 0;

  uc_fp = fopen("USRCNT", "r+b");
  if (uc_fp != NULL)  {
    fread(&u_cnt, sizeof (long), 1, uc_fp);
    u_cnt ++;
    fwrite(&u_cnt, sizeof (long), 1, uc_fp);
    sprintf(buf, "You are player #%ld to logon since 9/10/97", u_cnt);
    SEND_TO_Q(buf, d); }
