    stream command....

    hi, my question is really simple. Im working with streams and i dont know the "end of file" command for c++ (i dont even know if there is such a thing) any help would be appreciated ;D

    oh and also, lemme know if this thinking is correct:
    i wanna do something like
    (pseudocode)

    while(!eof)
    read file to populate an Event vector (consisting of a string and a number)

    ive already populated a vector with a finite capacity but i wanna be able to "push_back" it to fill it with the entire content of the file.

    thanks

    Code:
    if (!infile.is_open())
      return -1;
      while (infile.peek()!=EOF)
      {
    //read 
      }

    Oh I just noticed I left that if(!infile.open()) there...it's good to check for that before you try to read, but make sure returning -1 works for wherever you put it in your code
