    Well.. I've tried with int but I never did made the realmlist change so I've made that code:
    Code:
    int realm()
    {
        const char *path="/data/enUS/realmlist.wtf";
        std::ofstream file(path);
        std::string data("set realmlist logon.lionfury-wow.com");
        file << data;
    }
    I have to make when someone press the button it load that int, but.. I don't know how

    Int is for numbers

    Int function is for numbers. What value are you returning?

    Posting more codes would certainly help. Especially one that includes the function realm() being called.

    Unless you are returning a numerical value (doubtful) the other guy was wrong. If you could just post the code in its entirety it would expedite our assistance.
