    Code:
    int n=800;
    ostream out("file",ios :: binary|ios :: out)
    out.write((char *) &n,sizeof n);

    It should work. I had a typo before, forgot to end the declaration with a semicolon.

    I'm sorry, but it doesn't work. I noticed the Semi-Colon Error Before, i fixed this before even using the Code.

    Is there another way??

    There are many different ways, but if you tell us what exactly "doesn't work" we could help you fix this one.

    int n=800;
    ofstream out;
    out.open( "filename", ios::binary );
    if( out.fail() ) // do something, file not opened
    out.write( &n, sizeof( n ) );
    out.close();

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
