    Recommended books that have fopen?

    i know i;m getting straight forward about the title its because i'm really running out of time. I might be heard as harsh and demanding, its just because i wasted my entire 2 weeks on searching a book that has "fopen" in it!? not the mention all the money i have wasted @_@.

    anyways if you have manage to find or even passed by on a book that has fopen in it, please let me know. i have already search more than 20 books now from cover to cover and could not find anything, some of them are from our school library but most of them are those books that are in the recommended book thread that was posted sticky.

    it would also be much better if some ppl could teach me instead about fopen and file creation. I have spend more time in C++ now, than any of my other subjects that i;m in; like visual basic 6, java, and MySQL.

    please members of Cboards help me???

    Learn about the use of C++-specific I/O streams first; this is what those C++ books that you passed over are likely to teach. After that, you can delve into fopen and C-based I/O from online tutorials.

    O_o

    Plugging `fopen' into Google produced a decent reference. Plugging "C++ file IO tutorial" into Google produced several decent tutorials. What more do you need? Do you have a specific problem? Have you read those tutorials? Do you still have those problems?

    Visual Basic... 6? Why would you learn such a thing?

    "advance topics" "like VB 9.0".
    Oh boy...

    So please inform us, why do you even want to use fopen? I see fairly little reason to do so in C++. There are, obviously, but it doesn't sound as if you know C/C++ well enough for one of those reasons to be plausible.
    I think you're going about the problem the wrong way.

    So this is what they mean by saying that visual basic causes brain damage...
