    Please can someone help me with this!?

    All I need is a small piece of code that sends a file called "C:/Windows/Temp/sample.txt" to the same location but to my computer (maybe just cin (input) the IP address in the executable). Can anyone help me please! The file does not have to be "C:/Windows/Temp/sample.txt", maybe also just the sample.txt file in the folder that the .exe file is. My main question is how do you transfer files from one computer to another or to an e-mail. If anyone is kind enough to write a piece of code for this...could you please send it to krzyzanowski_robert@hotmail.com.
    I know this is real advanced C++ programming, but there might be a person who can do it :-)

    >My main question is how do you transfer files from one computer to another or to an e-mail.
    What you're talking about is working with sockets. To get started with this not so simple aspect of programming, go here.

    >If anyone is kind enough to write a piece of code for this...
    Not likely, this isn't a trivial program for many people.

    >I know this is real advanced C++ programming, but there might be a person who can do it :-)
    There are plenty who can do it, but here we help you with your problems, we don't do all of the work for you.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    i am not totally sure if I understand what your asking but if your asking what i think you are then u need to add a code to open up the output file then when doin the cout<< after just do NameoffileOut<< and that will output it to the file. and when finished make sure to close both files example here:
    not sure if this helps but I think this may be what you were asking about
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    void main()
    {
    ofstream file;
    string filename = "sample.txt";
    name_of_filein.open(filename.data());
    name_of_fileout.open(filename.data())
    name_of_filein>>"hello world \n";
    name_of_fileout<<"Hello world \n";
    cout<<"hello world \n";
    name_of_filein.close(filename.data());
    name_of_fileout.close;
    system("PAUSE");
    clrscr();
    }
