    Beginner Question - Linking a data file

    I've just begun to teach myself C++ and am using the DevC++ compiler. I've been trying to discover how to build and link a data file to a C++ program (the program calc's gross tonnage of a seagoing vessel) in DevC. Their website is not helping me. Can anyone here point me in the correct direction or give me a clue as to how I can create a data file???

    You create a data file with something along these lines:
    #include <iostream>
       std::ostream astream("outfile.txt");
       astream << "This is my data" << std::endl;
    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
