    need info on saving/loading data

    I can't find tutorials or forum posts on this anywhere, for some reason.

    I want to take INT and/or STRING values and write them to a file (.txt or otherwise) that can be re-read by the program on the next run. Can I pipe the output of printf or something?

    Thanks in advance.

    Look at fopen to open a file, fprintf to write to a text file, and fwrite to write to a binary file

    I wouldn't write out in a binary format unless you are sure the data won't need to be portable.
