    C++ data storage

    I am working on a C++ project to make a statistics spreadsheet i.e. for a sports team. I need to know how to store data once it is entered. For instance I would like to be able to enter a stat like how many points a player scored in one game and be able to bring up that program at a later date and still have that entry available. Any help at all would be awesome.

    If your just wanting to use C++ console applications.
    std::cout //Show output on screen
    std::cin //get input from user
    std::getline //get input from user
    std::string //store string input
    std::ifstream //load from file
    std::ofstream //save to file

    will be of a lot of use. Any specific question can be answered more thoroughly.

    So I would use std:fstream to save the data to a file and then open the console and use ifstream to load the file again, or would I need to do an if statement or somethin like that in order to load the data to the original program/

    just skip the console thing and you are close
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    If you are looking for a spreadsheet kind of program, why not just use existing spreadsheet software?

    If not, then perhaps you would like to consider using say, a relational database?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
