I'm trying to write a program that loads numbers / strings from a file. It's for loading a 3D model, so contains a lot of numbers (for points) and tags (strings) saying what the numbers mean.
What sorts of methods / libraries can I use to do this? My main problem is getting good enough string handling to read the file and work out what the tags mean, ignoring white space etc. It sounds very simple and simultaneously very difficult to me :S
