    Arrow Copy from cout to hard file?

    I am nearing the end of a small program which allows the user to cull the letter frequency of encrypted text and display it in standard output. I thought that I would allow the ability to save a hardcopy of their results in a drive-file. I have figured out how to do this, but not without preventing each character from displaying on the console screen. I would like to retain screen print while at the same time recording data into text file. Any hints or help would be greatly appreciared.

    Hello,

    Since you are dealing with C++, I would recommend ofstream.

    ofstream: File class for writing operations (derived from ostream)

    Here is a nice tutorial on how to open, write, and close the file properly: C++ tutorial: 6.1, Input/Output with files

    Other resources:

    If you have further questions, please feel free to ask.

    Segmentation Fault: I am an error in which a running program attempts to access memory not allocated to it and core dumps with a segmentation violation error. This is often caused by improper usage of pointers, attempts to access a non-existent or read-only physical memory address, re-use of memory if freed within the same scope, de-referencing a null pointer, or (in C) inadvertently using a non-pointer variable as a pointer.

    Stack:
    thank-you for you informed and timely reply, Stack Overflow (and, I will probably post again this weekend if I cannot make it work correctly).
