    Read text from a file into an array

    I have to write a program that reads a file consisting of students' test scores in the range of 0-100. They are just listed in a .txt file.

    I'm supposed to make a function called readScores that reads the test scores from a file into an array. How do i go about writing this function, I'm stuck. I'm confused with the array part and how to put it into the array. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    1)Try writing a program that puts the numbers 0-9 into an array using a for-loop? Try it, and if you get stuck, post the code you have.

    2) Write your function to read all the scores into a single variable. Then, use what you learned from 1) to make some modifications.
