Write a program to generate personalized junk mail. The program takes input both from an input file and from the keyboard. The input file contains the text of a letter, except that the name of the recipient is indicated by the three characters #N#. The program asks the user for a name and then writes the letter to a second file but with the three letters #N# replaced by the name. The three-letter string #N# will occur exactly once in the letter.
Hint: Have your program read from the input file until it encounters the three characters #N#, and have it copy what it reads to the output file as it goes. When it encounters the three letter #N#, it then sends output to the screen asking for the name from the keyboard.
I have everything working but the #N#. Anyone have some hints to help?

out_stream.open("outfile.dat"); //opens out_stream
if (out_stream.fail()) // tells if out_stream fails
cout << "Output file opening failed.\n";
in_stream.close(); //closes in_stream
out_stream.close(); //closes out_stream
cout <<"End of editiong files.\n";

if(next == '#')
out_stream << NAME;
out_stream << next;
