Write a C program enter a number from the key board and store it in the text file called “number.dat”. If the number exist in the file, display an error message. Program should allow to input numbers until user input -99.

Not sure about the exact code in c, but I'd have a while loop checking through the file to see if any numbers match the input. If it matches a previous number in the file, write something to the console and terminate the program. After a certain amount of attempts, break the while loop.
