    How to write and read object data from a file ?

    Hello there
    I am trying to make a simple student database program. I have done this before with C. Now want to do this with C++ using class. In C I have stored structure data by using fwrite() function. But how can I write object data (integer and string data) in C++ ? and also how can I read the object data for that file ? any example code and explanation will help me a lot

    thanks in advance.

    Not yet a real C++ Programmer; but link to the serialization topic found using Google.

    Standard C++

    What file format do you want to use - text or binary?

    think writing a function that prepares a 'presentable' string for the appropriate classes should do the trick. You can then call those functions with a member of the linked list.
