    How do I turn this C++ into a win32 c++ app?

    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <cstring>

    using namespace std;

    int main()
    {
        
    string r_place;
        
    string word;
        
        
    ifstream f_in("example.txt");//open file to READ
        
        
    cout<<"Enter word you wish to replace"<<endl;
        
    cin>>word;
        
    cin.ignore();
        
        
    int size word.length();//find the length of the word
        
        
    cout<<"Enter word you wish to replace it with"<<endl;
        
    getline(cin,r_place,'\n');
        
        
    cin.ignore();
        
    cout<<"\n\n";
        
        
        
    string search;
        
    ofstream f_out("update.txt");//open file to WRITE
        
        
    while(getline(f_insearch'\n'))//read in a line
        
    {
            
           
        
    string::size_type pos = -1;
        while( ( 
    pos search.find(wordpos+1) ) != string::npos )
        {
            
    search.replace(pos,size,r_place);
            
    //search.erase( (search.begin() + pos), (search.begin() + (pos + size)) );
            //search.insert( pos, r_place );
        
    }
        
    f_out << search << endl;//Write to file
            
            
        
    }
        
    f_in.close(); //close file (reading)
        
    f_out.close(); //close file (writing)
        
    cin.get();
        
        

    How do I put this in a application (Borland c++ 6) with forms (win32).

    For example I have a tick box and if you tick it, and you click a button it finds a code thats linked to the tickbox in an external file and replaces it with a text (also linked to the tick box).

    Ok, then you will be able to understand my code, or hopefully. I know I got a bit carried away and went and wrote the whole thing in Win32 for you, but here it is. Attached:

    EDIT: Oh yeah, sorry about the comments. I started commenting the code but then I just got carried away and forgot to comment the rest. I hope it's easy enough to figure out though.

    Glad I could help. I will answer your questions, when you get back. You are going to Prague, as in the capital of the Czech Republic?

    }
    Well, I did it with stdio.h functions...

    Sorry, I use Dev-C++. I personally dislike Borland products, but that's just me.

    MinGW Studio is the only freeware IDE I can think of that has an integrated visual resource editor.
