    Are you asking how to open and read a file, open and write a file, and create a file in C++?

    Use the ifstream class to read from files. (#include <fstream.h>)
    ex.

    Code:
    ifstream fin("filename.txt");
    fin.write(stuffToWrite, 100, '\n');
    fin.close();
    Use the ofstream class to read from files. (#include <fstream.h>)
    ex.

    Code:
    ofstream fout("filename.txt");
    fout.getline(variableToHoldStuff, 100, '\n');
    fout.close();

    check http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial/lesson10.html for a much better description of all this. I may have misread your question.. if this is the case just ignore me, and hopefully someone else will help you

    this belongs in the windows forum.

    if you want info on these functions how about you try MSDN online?? or even Google??

    type the name of these functions into just about ANY search engine and you'll get a million sites that will tell you what you want to know.

    don't be so lazy next time, use the web, that's what it's there for!
