    How does one save variables to a file?

    I have several variables in a program of mine that I would like to be able to save to a file, exit the program, then recall the data at request another time the user runs the program. Basically to save data, I guess. I'm pretty new to C++ so help would be appreciated.

    Thanks very much. I looked around but I guess I did a bad job. I was looking for a complete explanation and you supplied me with one. Thanks for the quick response!

    no prob, seems like you're new to the boards somewhat, so just for heads up in the future

    Don't be afraid to still ask questions here if you're stuck, your search skills will improve with time.
