    Read variables and stuff from a text file

    I am making an Rpg, and I want my players to be able to save their game to a text file. I don't want you to write the entire program jsut give me the general idea.

    An example of the text is the *.txt file is

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Player Names]
    Player1 = Chris Jones
    Player2 = Ed Jones
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How do I get the program to read the line and make the char Player1 = Chris Jones.

    you'll need to use strings, not chars.

    What is your question?

    How to read in a file? It should be in the faq..
