    Text File

    I was wondering how you make a textin.dat file and change the
    input to my txtOut.dat file? Here is my code below

    // Character.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.

    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>

    using namespace std;

    int main()
    {
    cout << "Character Generator v1.0 - Programmed In C++
    By: Rob" << "\n";
    char Name[50], Class[50], Race[50];
    cout << "Character Name: ";
    cin>>Name;
    cin.ignore();
    cout << "Character Class: ";
    cin>>Class;
    cin.ignore();
    cout << "Character Race: ";
    cin>>Race;
    cin.ignore();
    cout << "Outputting To File..." << "\n";
    ofstream a_file ( "Character.txt" );
    a_file<<Name;
    a_file<<"\n";
    a_file<<Class;
    a_file<<"\n";
    a_file<<Race;
    a_file.close();
    ifstream b_file ( "txtOut.dat" );
    cout << "Character Outputted To This Program's Directory."
    << "\n";
    cout << "Press Enter To Exit...";
    cin.get();
    return 0;

    You pretty much do exactly what you did with cin but with b_file instead.

    Don't forget the [code][/code] tags.
    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.
