Music Database

Your task for the final application is to create a personal music database program using the CUI library.

the file

Records are kept in the following format:

    char name[71];
    char artist[71];
    char album[71];
    char releaseDate[11];
    unsigned long genre;
    unsigned long rating;

  1. Getting the file name through the command line argument list.
  2. Getting the file name through a prompt within the program.
