    Question Help with ifstream read plz

    I have written to a binary file using the following
    m_fpFileOut.write((char *) &m_wHeader,sizeof(trUInt16));
    m_fpFileOut.write((char *) &m_kDate.m_bDay,sizeof(trUInt8));
    m_fpFileOut.write((char *) &m_kDate.m_bMonth,sizeof(trUInt8));
    m_fpFileOut.write((char *) &m_kDate.m_wYear,sizeof(trUInt16));
    The file looks like what I expect but when I try to read in the file using:
    Code: *) &m_wHeader,sizeof(trUInt16)); *) &m_kDate.m_bDay,sizeof(trUInt8)); *) &m_kDate.m_bMonth,sizeof(trUInt8)); *) &m_kDate.m_wYear,sizeof(trUInt16));
    m_wHeader get populated correctly but the others remain at the values that I initialized them with.

    Any ideas ?

    Only 4 hours... that's not too bad
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
