    Me and my 2.8+ million lines of code

    I wrote a 2700 line program to generate 2.8 million lines of if/and statements, which it now happily spams into my command prompt, via cout<<. The problem is that my command prompt apparently doesn't remember all 2.8 million lines (I think the buffer max is like 999 lines), is there a way I can output my newly generated code somewhere that I can read it, and then cut and paste it into my compiler -- Notepad perhaps?

    I'm no expert but...

    won't that take an awful long time to compile?

    Salem really sums it up...

    2.8 million lines? Why? What are you trying to do?
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Hm, 2.8 million if's? Ouch. Wouldn't it be better to find some way to use a loop or something? Or maybe a better test condition or something?

    Also, I don't think Notepad can handle 2.8-million line files. It choked on a 2Kb file or something for me, and 2.8 million lines is going to be something like 28Mb...

    Hunter2:

    2KB choked it??????

    If you right-click on a file you will see view(lister).

    That works in notepad. Bigger files will be put in wordpad.

    I did it with a 600 MB file.. so HA! you need a new hardrive.... try the Alien 4

    You can do that under Windows as well, as Salem suggested.

    >it choked on 2kb??
    Oops, memory lapse. It choked on 100k actually, but the end result is still the same, notepad won't handle a 28Mb file. And yes, I know that Wordpad will handle large file sizes; no need to boast about your harddrive handling a 600mb textfile or whatever it was, I've had wordpad handle a 30.2Gb textfile. So... I'll just keep my cheap no-name brand econosaver harddrive that I got for a few pennies

    I don't know what you're doing, but have you at least considered a Switch...case statement, if you can't think of any other ways to do it? Because 2.8 million lines of nothing but if statements is ridiculous.
    Away.

    Try this. Things aren't always that hard to find; and cprogramming.com has a lot of good tutorials for the basics.

    Code:
    cin>>input;	 
    
      switch (input)	
    
      {	   
    
       case 1: playgame();
    
    	   break;
    if input is:

    char input[256]

    and case 1=playgame

    then how would the above be rewritten?
