Do you have to output to a file first and then input from it? Or can you just tell the input to point to a location for the file? Also since i am already here. How can i get it to read a line, check it and if not what its looking for go back to the file and read the second line and so on and so on? Any tutorials would be nice. Sorry for not posting code. If you need more info i will try to post code. Thanks.
