    Ofstream Problem

    my code is.
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include <fstream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main(){
    	string text;
    	string name;
    	ofstream test;
    
    	cout<<"Enter some text\n";
    	getline(cin, text);
    
    	cout<<"enter the file name with the extension and path(ex. c:/users/jon/filename.txt)\n";
    	getline(cin, name);
    	test.open(text);
    	test<<text;
    	test.close();
    	system("pause");
    }
    and the error I got was |17|error: no matching function for call to`std::basic_ofstream<char, std::char_traits<char> >:: open(std::string&)'|

    What IDE and compiler are you using? This code seems fine and works fine.

    This:
    Code:
    test.open(text);
    should be:
    Code:
    test.open(text.c_str());
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
