    Exclamation Help

    Hello,
    I'm working on a hangman program, and I'm having trouble writing a code that chooses a random everytime it is played...
    Here's the code I started on...

    Code:
    	string s;
    	int count=0;
    	string filename = "words.txt";
    	ifstream input;
    	input.open(filename.c_str());
    	    if (input.fail())
        {   cout << "could not open " << filename << " for reading" << endl;
            exit(1);
        }
    	while (getline(input, s))
    	{
    		count++;
    	}
    Thanks for the help.

    Using my vast telepathic powers, I've located the problem. Using yours, discern the answer. If you don't have any, then you'll have to post some code.

    Woah... Deja Vu!

    On a side note, if you had actually read the FAQ, you wouldn't have needed to post.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
