I am going through a C tutorial and trying to write a program to pull lines 
from a file.  The section below is pretty much taken from the tutorial and is 
the same in another tutorial.   gcc doesn't seem to recognize the word "FILE" 
in line 20.  Does FILE require some other #include statement?  

Lines 20 - 25:
                FILE  *fptr ;  , *fopen();
                fptr=fopen("/home/bruce/c-progs/mywords", "r");
                {printf("Can't open file\n");

[bruce@bertha c-progs]$ gcc jumble.c
jumble.c: In function `main':
jumble.c:20: parse error before `*'
jumble.c:21: `fptr' undeclared (first use in this function)
jumble.c:21: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
jumble.c:21: for each function it appears in.)
