    getline I/O

    This should be a fairly simple question, but how do I get a whole line from a file and store it as a string?

    This is what I have right now:
    Code:
    int main()
    {
    	string a = "";
    	string b = "";
    	string fileName = "";
    
    	cout << "Enter file name (case sensative): ";
    	cin.ignore();
    	cin >> fileName;
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    //	Input File
    /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    	
    	try {
    	ifstream b_file(fileName.c_str());
    	b_file >> a;
    	b_file.close();
    
    //more stuff...
    }
    All it spits out is the first word though.
