    You can use <fstream> for file content manipulation.
    You can use remove() (MS CRT) or DeleteFile() (Win32 API) for file deletion.

    Let us know if you have a more specific question.

    well, as I am a student (electronic engeeniering) I have to write a class to manipulate archives, this class must contain at least tree functions: add information, read and show it at the display, write in the archive, besides having a constructor and a destructor, could you help me with the code (I tried to do it but the compiler always shows errors).

    Delete function: copy the whole file, and make the line (entire line) that you want to delete a string, now copy the data back, but exclude the data you deleted.

    Add function similar to delete but it adds it after a line specified

    move function: Combo of add + delete.
