    Writing to text file

    When OutFile to a text file, why does it display in a straight line even though I have set << endl; at the end?

    No idea.
    Post a program which does this (a test program if your main program is large), and state your operating system and compiler.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Why is your title "reading form text file" when the problem is about writing to it?
    Anyway, what program do you use to view it? That might be the problem too. I've noticed this effect on other text files, most likely caused by the \n \r stupidity...

    I use Notepad to see the text file.
