Thread: Fstream Problem

    Question Fstream Problem

    Ok...I have a problem with fstream. When ever you type in a space when you type what you want in the fstream generated file, the first word only comes out. For example, my sample code, compiles but it only shows the first word:

    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    int main(void)
    char paragraph[20];
    cout << "Enter a sentence:";
    cin >> paragraph;
    ofstream a_file (test.txt);
    a_file << "Your Paragraph is:" << endl
    << paragraph;
    return 0;

    Why is this? Someone Please Help. Thanks in advance.

    you are using cin>> into a char array... this will only read up until the first whitespace character......

    use cin.getline(paragraph,20) instead.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
