    File processing

    Hi,

    I wanna know is how to create a file in a specific directory. And if I don't specify a directory, what's the default directory that the file will be created in?

    For example, in the following code, where will the file be created?

    Code:
    cfPtr = fopen( "client.dat", "w" )
    Pls also tell me how to create a file in a specific directory.

    thnx in advance

    Your file will be created in the same Dir as your app.

    To creat in a different dir;


    Code:
    cfPtr = fopen( "C:\\somedir\\client.dat", "w" )
    Dont forget the extra escape char
