    concatenate text files

    Hi,

    at a given time in a program I am developing, I need to concatenate several text files, and place the result in a new one.

    Is there an efficient way of doing this?

    Thank

    Since you can copy a file with essentially one line
    while ( fgets( buff, sizeof buff, fin ) != NULL ) fputs( buff, fout );

    What do you mean by efficient?
    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.

    . . . or rather
    Code:
    while(in >> c) out << c;
    dwk
