    Help with structs

    Hey people I am having an issue with structs and hopeing someone could help me out...

    The code i have writen is as follows....

    Code:::

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <string.h>

    struct name
    {
    char firstname[15];
    char middleinitial[3];
    char lastname[15];
    };
    name fullname;
    struct listing
    {
    name fullname;
    char title[31];
    char phone[15];
    char officenum[11];
    };
    listing entry;
    int main()
    {
    // Define local variables
    name firstname[15];
    name middleinitial[3];
    name lastname[15];
    listing title [31];
    listing phone[15];
    listing officenum;
    char end_condition;

    // Read in from file

    ifstream in;
    in.open ("direct.dat");
    in.get (entry.fullname.firstname, 15, ';');
    in.get ();
    in.get (entry.fullname.middleinitial, 3, ';');
    in.get ();
    in.get (entry.fullname.lastname, 15, ';');
    in.get ();
    in.get (entry.title, 31, ';');
    in.get ();
    in.get (entry.phone, 15, ';');
    in.get ()
    in.get (entry.officenum, 11, '\n');
    in.get ();

    :::Code

    The problem i am haveing right now is with the last 3 in.get where im trying to put data into the title, phone, and officenum. for some reason i cant even compile with those as they are.

    I dont know if im calling to the struct variables properly... im jsut confused because i have the top 3 working right... and i thought i had the form the same.

    also, one other quick question about structs... can i take a struct (that is created via user input) and export the entire struct to a file?

    any help will be most welcome!!!!!

    Okay, those aren't code tags, but at least you tried. What does the input data look like?

    the input data looks like this:

    firstname; m; lastname; job title; (pho) num-bers; officenumber

    Im also gona have to input in this same manner.

    Your code is a bit messy as it is now. Could get rid of the semi-colon thing in the input? Anyways, the problem is you should be delimitting each entry with a space rather than a semi-colon. If you must leave the semi-colons there, then still delimit with spaces, but change the semi-colon into a null terminator.

    I cant use a space, because i have to allow for the title to be multiple words seperated by a space.

    the issue i have is acessing the data variables in the struct "listing" i cannot access title, phone number, or office number
