    Question File Reading

    Say I have a file like:

    2345##23
    4######3
    222#678#


    and say I want to give this file to main as an argument.
    and I want main to read the file and put the data
    in a multidimensional array like:

    int myarray[7][3];

    after the process myarray should contain data
    like this:

    myarray[0][0] will be 2
    myarray[0][1] will be 4

    and so on...


    how can I do it?

    thanks for helping

    you will either need to use a char array or ignore the # signs storing a default number in it's place.

    you need to use nested loops to read in the data in a sequential fashion.

    for(i \\etc.
    {
    for(j \\etc
    inputStream >> array[i][j];
    }
    }
