The supplied solution seems correct to me however you also said
>I had to add FILE* before o_file = stdout in the main section

What do you mean by this? did you write

static FILE* o_file;
int main (int argc, char** argv)
FILE* o_file = stdout;

If this is true you created a new variable (probably never used)
while the global o_file variable has an undefined value. That
would also explain the segmentation fault.

There are probably more variables in the 'main' function
skip all of these and then place the assigment "o_file = stdout;"

Hmmm, you probably don't know what variables are (in C that is)
The first lines after 'main' are variables. The first assigment
probably follows after the first whiteline.

So it should look something like this

int main (int argc, char** argv)
char foo;
int bar;
FILE* stuff;

function_call(foo, bar); <- first statement. place the
....                         o_file=stdout; above this.

If you can't follow this you can send me the text in the 'main'
function and I will mail the correction to you.
(too lazy too find & download the PnP-tools)
