    Get data from a .txt file field by field...


    I've created a program that saves and uploads data from a .txt file and into a vector.

    But know im having a small problem, i need to save the data in the .txt file in this format:
    name, adress, phone, etc, etc2

    The program is saving the data in that order, the problem now is that i can't load the data because of that format :-(

    Can anyone tel me how i can load the data, but keeping that format in the .txt file?

    I dont think so that formatting is possible in txt file.

    Once i had used latex to generate formatted output in a pdf file.
    S_ccess is waiting for u. Go Ahead, put u there.

    I don't follow. You just want to save the data into a comma delineated txt file? Why don't you show us some code, and point out where your having trouble

    if i understand what you wish :
    store the info in that format.
    for example in the txt file you will see :
    name adress phone etc

    the loading will be also the same :
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <errno.h>
    struct info
    	char name[80];
    	char adrs[10];
    int main(void)
        FILE *fp;
        struct info c;
        char str[80];
        float f;
        fp = fopen("/tmp/1.txt","r");
        if (!fp)
        while(fscanf(fp, "&#37;s%s",, c.adrs) != EOF) 
           printf("%s %s",,c.adrs);
        return 0;
