    I Want to save the info that was input.

    I would like to find information on how to so what most programs do.

    Save the information used, so when the program is started again it will load up that information that I had previously input into the program.

    For instance, in my program the user will input information on a particular patient and possibly change that info during the patients stay at the hospital, then after the patient leaves we will delete that informaton. So I need to know how keep that information saved if we shut down the program.


    Thanks for any help.

    Wow.

    I think what you're looking for is how to first save information to a file and then how to load it from a file afterwards. http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/lesson10.html It's fairly straightforward.

    Ok I know how to use ifstream and ofstream to save like text files and bring them back in to manipulate them. I guess what I want is to have a save funtion to save like a database type information file, NOT to a text file.

    Lets say you enter information into a basic address book program, you would want to save that information you entered so as not to have to input that information again when you restart the program. Wouldn't make sense to have to reenter the info each time you start the address book.

    Thanks
