    General a.out redirection question under Linux

    Hi@all

    I wrote a program that reads data from a file under Linux. I am suppose to use a.out redirection to read the file. After read the file, I want to stop a.out redirection and enter some input from keyboard. Is this possible?

    Please help me..

    Thanks

    Yes.
    When you are done with reading the data from the file just go back to the screen,
    I.E.

    Code:
    {read file code}
    
    cout << “Sup’ user, enter some data”;
    int data;
    
    cin >> data;

    That won't work because the file data is being read through cin using redirection.

    I don't think it's possible.

    Hi Enahs

    As Daved said, cin doesn't work because of redirection. When program executes, it skips the line that includes cin command.
