Answer

Hopefully this would get you started

See it live on http://ideone.com/l23He (using stdin)

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

const char* getfield(char* line, int num)
{
    const char* tok;
    for (tok = strtok(line, ";");
            tok && *tok;
            tok = strtok(NULL, ";\n"))
    {
        if (!--num)
            return tok;
    }
    return NULL;
}

int main()
{
    FILE* stream = fopen("input", "r");

    char line[1024];
    while (fgets(line, 1024, stream))
    {
        char* tmp = strdup(line);
        printf("Field 3 would be %s\n", getfield(tmp, 3));
        // NOTE strtok clobbers tmp
        free(tmp);
    }
}

Output:

Field 3 would be nazwisko
Field 3 would be Kowalski
Field 3 would be Nowak
