    Exclamation data storage

    Hi all.. I'm pretty new to the c++ game and i'm getting a good understanding of it. I need some help though. For one program i'm writing, i need to store and retrieve a set of numbers (used as sales for a given week) and display them through an array. In qbasic which I have been using for a while, there is the simple DATA statement which i could READ at any time in the program. Does c++ have a similar stucture where i can declare data statements in the program and read them into an array? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    streams and loops can be used to do what you want, but maybe not in quite the same fashion as with QBasic. Streams have a variety of methods/operators to assist you.

    ya can we get an example going here perhaps? I'm having the same problem to get data from somewhere for use in calculations and could really use a sample or what i should specifically look up to learn in order to be able to do it.. thanks a bunch

    how about just a way to intialize the arrays with the variables already in them? is it possible to do that with strings, i know i can do it with numbers already

    Here's character array initialization.
    int main()
       char *cars[20] = {"Camry", "Sentra", "Cutlass", "Camaro", "Firebird",
       "Mustang", "Corvette","Impala", "LeSabre", "Neon",
       "Viper", "Beetle", "Le Sabre", "Cougar","Thunderbird",
       "Coup de Ville", "Miata", "Taurus", "Jaguar", "Porche"};
       for (i=0; i<20; i++)
          cout << cars[i] << endl;
       return 0;
