    Question Points saved

    is there a way to store points a person earnd on a game?


    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <fstream.h>


    int main ()
    {
    srand((unsigned)time(0));

    char name[9000];
    int guess;
    const int temp = 1 + (rand()%100);
    int trys = 0;
    int points = 9;
    cout << "Guess what number I am thinking of between 1 and 100...\nto get points you have to guess it in 9 guesses : ";
    cin >> guess;
    while (guess != temp)

    {

    while (guess < temp)
    {
    cout << "The number is higher...Guess again : ";
    cin >> guess;
    trys++; if (trys == 8) {cout << "No points awarded";exit(1);}
    }
    while (guess > temp)
    {
    cout << "The number is lower...Guess again : ";
    cin >> guess;
    trys++; if (trys == 8) {cout << "No points awarded";exit(1);}
    }
    while (guess == temp)


    {
    cout << "You are correct \n and it only took "<<trys+1<<" try(s)...You get 10 points...\nEnter your name :";
    cin >> name;
    break;
    }

    ofstream fout;
    fout.open("testfile.txt");
    fout << "GOOD WORK " << name << " YOU GOT " << points++ << " POINTS";
    fout.close();

    }
    return 0;
    }

    what i am trying to do is a person guess the correct answer then they enter their name and get 10 points and every time they answer correctly they get 10 more ect ect.....
    is there a way to save it on a txt file and the txt file changes as the points increase....?

    You would have to create a file that you can read into a linked list. Then you would have to implement a search function for your linked list to search for existing names, then you would have to write the linked list to a file, overwriting the previous one.
