C++ data storage
I am working on a C++ project to make a statistics spreadsheet i.e. for a sports team. I need to know how to store data once it is entered. For instance I would like to be able to enter a stat like how many points a player scored in one game and be able to bring up that program at a later date and still have that entry available. Any help at all would be awesome.
If your just wanting to use C++ console applications.
std::cout //Show output on screen
std::cin //get input from user
std::getline //get input from user
std::string //store string input
std::ifstream //load from file
std::ofstream //save to file
will be of a lot of use. Any specific question can be answered more thoroughly.
So I would use std::ofstream to save the data to a file and then open the console and use ifstream to load the file again, or would I need to do an if statement or somethin like that in order to load the data to the original program/
just skip the console thing and you are close
If you are looking for a spreadsheet kind of program, why not just use existing spreadsheet software?
If not, then perhaps you would like to consider using say, a relational database?
well i'm doing it as a project in a programming class. I need to use c++. what is a relational database?
