    It's in iostream.

    From console:
    char line[80];
    cin.getline(line,80);

    From a file:
    char line[80];
    char filename = "file.txt";
    ifstream in(filename);
    in.getline(line,80);

    Actually I should have said:

    The first example (for console i/o) uses <iostream>.
    The second example (for file i/o) uses <fstream>.
