    Once you know which algorithms you need, you can then look for a C++ implementation. The best way to do that is search in your reference.
    it depends what type of algorrithms we are talking about, an algorithm as far as i know is a set of rules for solving a problem, i need as many algorithms for file i/o that i can find, if the word algorithm has some other meaning in computer science then can you please explain that to me.

    That's exactly the definition for algorithm, but you don't look for "algorithms for file i/o". You define your problem first and then look for one or more algorithms that solve this particular problem.

    If you want to learn more about algorithms in general, you could check the book thread or ask for recommendations. (I don't have any myself. I learned this stuff from my university textbooks, which are not available anywhere else.)
    All the buzzt!
