    I need to know if I'm on the right track for this program problem
    Write a program that reads the attached text file. Each record in the file contains a name. You are to create an output file named names.csv. csv is the file extension for a comma delimited file. You are to create the csv file in such a way that the names in the input file wind up in columns rather than rows when you open the file in Excel. Let me know what I need to do to make this work or let me know if I'm on the right track.

    Thank you, Joel

    Source code

    #include<fstream.h>
    #include<iostream.h>
    #include<stdlib.h>


    int main ()

    {

    ifstream in_stream;
    ofstream out_stream;

    cout << "Edit files.\n";


    //open input file. If the file cannot be opened. Print fail statement and end.

    in_stream.open("namesin.txt");
    if(in_stream.fail())
    {

    cout <<"Input file opening failed.\n";

    exit(1);

    }


    // Open output file. If the file cannot be opened. Print fail statement and end.

    out_stream.open("names.csv");
    if(out_stream.fail())

    {

    cout <<"Output file opening failed.\n";

    exit(1);

    }

    char name[4];

    while(!in_stream.eof())
    {

    in_stream >> name;

    out_stream <<(name)<<"," <<endl;

    }

    in_stream.close();
    out_stream.close();

    cout << "End of files.\n";

    getchar();

    return 0;

    }
