He wants to know how to check if a file exists and how would you check to see if that same file was empty as in having no data in it.
He basically wants to know which standard c++ library you are supposed to use?
he was thinking something like this
Code:ifstream inFile("a:data", ios::nocreate) if(!infile.Is_open()) //....whatever
"The nocreate doesn't seem to be a member of ios anymore, giving errors. How can you do the same using another function, and not using stdio.h from C."
