    Red face Reading spaces, carrage returns, eof from text files

    Dumb newbie question.....

    What. as in characters, would i use to denote a Carrage Return in a string search. As an example if i wanted to find how many carrage returns there were in a file to find the number of lines. I dont need code i just need to know what to search for. Also if i am going to search for spaces and insert spaces i would just search for " " or output a " " right? Or is there a different way a space is denoted in a text files i could use to find the actual spacebar presses not just white space.

    Thanks if you can understand me =)

    Sleep nowww.......

    Heres a link that might help with your spaces issue:

    http://cboard.cprogramming.com/searc...der=descending

    As your title reads it seems u also meand to ask about end of file? A quick chunck of code for going while its not the end of the file:

    Code:
    do
    {
    ...
    }
    while (!somefile.eof());
