C++ File I/O Help
Ok so im working on a project... here are the specs:
I'm given a data.txt file with the following info:
0 || person_name || status
the 0 represents a number between 0-228 (not all the numbers in between)... basically this number is an "Arrival time" (this program is a simulation)..
The status field is tells what kind of person they are (specificly alumni , etc)
Basically my question is this... how do I read in data from a outside source? I want to store the numbers into an array, the name into a seperate array, and finally the status in another. (3 arrays)... How do I do that?
The specific assignment im trying to work on is located here:
and the data file is here:
thank you for your time.
Lots of views, yet no posts... Is there no one out there that can help?
First off it don't bump your posts. Someone will give you an answer when they have a chance.
Second you need to read this http://cboard.cprogramming.com/annou...ouncementid=39

As one of the views, I feel obliged to defend my choice not to reply. You're problem is both uninteresting and common. That combination is good for being ignored as you can find your answer with a board search. I'm also sure plenty of people will reply to inform you of that. :D
im not asking you to do my homework for me... my question is simple (yeah sorry if its not interesting but oh well):
How do you input data from a text file into an array? ....
char *buf = new char[MAX_LEN];
That is very basic, and some of the syntax might be a bit off. But it will give you something to read into.
>im not asking you to do my homework for me...
I didn't think you were.
>yeah sorry if its not interesting but oh well
That wasn't my point. My point was that if you searched the boards before starting a new thread, you would have found your answer.
