    numbered lines

    hi all
    trying to read from an external file and
    have each line numbered..
    (i can do it if the char exceed a certain number, cause then I start the new line myself)
    but how can i check if a sentence (line) does not reach my x characters
    but begins a newline anyway.
    In other words, how can i number lines cvonsecutively even if some are very short?

    am I making sense?

    not really sure i understand what your after but i think one solution could be to read in the strings into a map<int,std::string> using the int as the line number and also the key to your string. Look up STL map if you are not familiar with it.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
