    Not working in linux...

    I am working on a pretty simple game with a couple of friends and i have a constructor that reads from a file. It works fine in windows but in linux it just freezes up. There are no windows specific routines in the constructor but for some reason it will not work. Can anyone help me figure out what is causing this. Any help would be uber appreciated.

    It is an allegro program. In windows i use devc++ to link the allegro libraries. In linux i am using code::blocks and i have `allegro-config --libs` in the 'other linker' box. That is what i have found to do the trick. `allegro-config --libs` is also how i compile allegro from the command line.

    card.cpp
    Code:
    #include <allegro.h>
    #include "standard_tcg.h"
    #include "card.h"
    #include "buttons.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <cstring>
    using namespace std;
    
    Card::Card(char id[7])
    {
        char set[4];
        char card[5];
        char fname[255];
    
        // parse the id into a set and card number
        for(int i = 0; i < 7; i++)
        {
            if(i < 3)
            {
                set[i] = id[i];
            }
            else
            {
                card[i-3] = id[i];
            }
        }
        card[4] = '\0';
    
    
        strcpy(fname, "card_data\\set");
        strcat(fname, set);
        strcat(fname, ".tcg");
        strcpy(filename, fname);
    
        ifstream IFP (fname);
    
        char comp_card[4];
        char send_buffer[512];
        char check;
        int  Icheck;
    
        int index = 0;
    
        while(!IFP.eof())
        {
            if(check == '[')
            {
                if(strcmp(card, comp_card) == 0)
                {
                    // parsing starts
                    IFP >> check >> check;
    
                    while(check != '>')
                        IFP >> check;
    
                    index = 0;
                    while(check != '#')
                    {
                        IFP >> check;
                        send_buffer[index] = check;
                        index++;
                    }
                    send_buffer[index-1] = '\0';
                    strcpy(Name, send_buffer);
    
                    while(check != '>')
                        IFP >> check;
    
                    IFP >> skipws;
                    IFP >> Icheck;
                    type1 = Icheck;
    
                    IFP >> noskipws >> check;
                    while(check != '>')
                        IFP >> check;
    
                    IFP >> skipws;
                    IFP >> Icheck;
                    type2 = Icheck;
    
                    IFP >> noskipws >> check;
    
                    while(check != '>')
                        IFP >> check;
    
                    //getting ability number 1
                    index = 0;
                    while(check != '#')
                    {
                        IFP >> check;
    
    					send_buffer[index] = check;
    					index++;
                    }
    				send_buffer[index-1] = '\0';
    				strcpy(ability_1, send_buffer);
                }
            }
            IFP >> check;
        }
    }
    
    int Card::Print_Card(BITMAP *bmp, int x, int y)
    {
        textprintf_ex(bmp, font, x, y+10, WHITE, -1,"%d", type1);
        textprintf_ex(bmp, font, x, y+20, WHITE, -1,"%d", type2);
        textprintf_ex(bmp, font, x, y+30, WHITE, -1,"%s", ability_1);
        textprintf_ex(bmp, font, x, y+100, WHITE, -1,"%s", filename);
        return 0;
    }
    I'm at a loss here...

    Linux directory separators are '/' not '\\', which may be a problem.

    You surely aren't using a backslash in a Linux path?
    Edit: Never mind, I am slow.

    I have yet another problem... throwing a crazy error

    I was coding the rest of "parser" for the program i was working on above and I get this error

    Terminate called after throwing instance of 'std::ios_base::failure'
    what(): basic_ios::clear
    Shutting down allegro due to signal #6

    I am using fedora 10 using code::blocks and the latest allegro (linker `allegro-config --libs`)

    if you think the file being used will help I can post it.

    Here is the code:
    Code:
    #include <allegro.h>
