    Question arrays

    Is there ANY way to write to /read from a 2-dimensional Array to a text file??

    Here's what i got so far:

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdio.h>

    int a,b,w,x,y,z;

    int grid[2][2]={{w,x}, {y,z}};
    for (int i=0; i<2; i++){
    for (int I=0; I<2; I++){
    wrt=fopen("d:\\cpp\\q", "w");
    fputw(a, wrt);
    wrt=fopen("d:\\cpp\\q", "r+");

    The basic flow of your program should be:

    declare variables
    input data into variables
    declare file pointer
    open file for writing
    use loop(s) to write data to file
    open file for reading
    use loop(s) for reading file data into array
    close file

    if you open the file each time through the loop(s) you will probably overwrite the data you previously entered unless you use a different flag. Just open it once for writing and then once for reading. Then close the file.

    you really don't need the variable a at all, just use the array indicies to indicate which specific int you are working with.

    fputw() doesn't exist, that I remember. fprintf(), fscanf(), fread(), fwrite(), fputc(), fputs() I remember, but not fputw().

    It's been quite a while since I used file pointers, but I pretty sure the general theme of my comments still holds even if the details are off somewhat.
