    file i/o

    I'm think I am having some problems with this, and I'm wondering if it's because I am trying to do something that can't be done. What it is is that I have saved data in a binary file, which I wrote by using fwrite like this...

    fwrite(&anarrayofstructs, sizeof(thestuct), numberofelementsinthearray, filepointer);

    I am trying to read it in the same way, except with fread...is this not possible, or is my error somewhere else? Or is there maybe something that I don't know?

    try this

    // set the packing alignment to 1 byte
    #pragma pack(1)

    //your file structs go here

    // set the packing alignment to default
    #pragma pack(0)
