    Need help migrating console app to windows app

    I am having trouble trying to figure out how to get a console app into a windows version of C++. My code basically takes a txt file and manipulates it to remove a form feed char and add 20 blank lines. I can do this easy in a console app like this:

    Code:
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include "iostream.h"
    #include "fstream.h"
    
    ifstream infile;
    ofstream outfile;
    
    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    {
      char next;
    
      infile.open("C:/test.txt");
      outfile.open("C:/outfile.txt");
    
      infile.get(next);
    
          while (! infile.eof())
          {
                    if (next == (char)12)		
    	{
    		int cnt;
    		for (cnt = 1; cnt <= 20; cnt++)
    		    outfile << "\n";			
    	      
    	}
    	else			
    		outfile.put(next);	
    		
    	infile.get(next);					
          }
    
    	infile.close();
    	outfile.close();
    return 0;
    }
    How would i get this into, say, a simple windows program, like a single document MFC wizard program to process this code when i open the file? I read alittle on serialization but dont have any examples to work with.

    MFC's serialization uses binary files, and the file opening code is usually for documents that stay open. Anways, the way I would do it is just overide the default function for opening a file from the message map. Then create a CFileDialog object, call DoModal, retrieve the file, and call the function that removes line feeds.
