    Question Tab issue when read file

    Hi, noob on board.

    I have some issues with the spliting data according to tab.

    What i need is to grab multiple inputs from a txt file and generate it into result txt file.

    the input file reads like;

    Johnny Bravo /tab S1234567
    Systems /tab/tab DT012
    VB /tab/tab DT234
    Adv Database /tab DT978
    .....


    I can understand if all data are seperated by 1 tab, but some of the infos in the txt file, such as some subjects taking by Johnny are tabbed more than once in the txt file depend on the text length, probably because of the alignment.

    Is there anyway for me to check for 1 or more tabs when getline()?

    Thanks.

    A for loop, and count them?
    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.
