    Post Help needed, C++ beginner

    I am currently writing a program using Dev-C++. The program will require the following:
    - Password on start-up
    - Menu System
    - Store vast ammounts of data to an external file
    - Be able to print out to my Laser Jet
    Have you got any C++ Source Code that I can have a look at that may be relevant to creating such a program.

    If so can you post here / email me at a1rsturbo@aol.com
    I'm using Bloodsheds Dev-C++ Compiler.

    source code for all the components of your program is available by searching this board for each component separately. Because file set up is not standard you will need to determine how you wish to store the data. In addition, you will learn more, better, and faster by trying your hand at the task. If you need assistance you are more likely to get what you are looking for by asking a specific question regarding a specific task/problem.

    LOL,
    Ur a newbie and expect to be able to do all of this before understanding the language...

    Well, for the menu system a switch case would be the best
    Password Encryption and stuph can be found at my Library Site:
    deth.ath.cx/pdf/
    Uhh.....
    This is for the prompt right???
    If you plan to do this on windows... BAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA
    That would be funny...
    If so DONT USE MFC! IT SUX AND HAS GLITCHES!
    I would use OpenGL, although its a graphics programming library I still use it when I want to program windows because its easier to comprehend and the handlers are FAR simplar...
    for GREAT tutorials goto
    NeHe
    Dont expect much if your a beginner, im very good at OpenGL but I nearly forgot all of the basics!
    SO I have to go back and learn them...


    For the file exporting
    Code:
    ofstream a_file;
    a_file.open("filedb.txt");
    //.........
    //......Code here
    a_file.close()
    For Printing:
    Code:
    ofstream printer;
    printer.open("LPT1");
    printer<<"Some text or string\f";  //U NEED THE \f, it means form 
                                                         // For the printer
    printer.close();
    Sorry if this isnt enough help, but this is all I could do besides right it for you...

    This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud.
    We make use of a service already existing withoutpaying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals.
    We explore... and you call us criminals.
    We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals.
    We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals.
    You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual,but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike.
