    can anyone translate this all to aschii characters?

    Illegal Parties, Fast new cars, flappers and swing dancing, are all part of the 1920s, also in the book "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story is about Nick Carraway, a man in his 30s who moves from Minnesota to West Egg, New York to learn and work in the stock and bonds business. From there, he befriends a wealthy man that lives next to him, known as Jay Gatsby. The book talks about the wild parties Gatsby holds and the wild lifestyles that the wealthy lived back in the 20s. Though the examples of these lifestyles are not true, the flappers, gambling and illegal drinking and the moral decay of the era are based on historical facts of these times.
    In the book "The Great Gatsby", flappers were scene everywhere. They were at the all the social events and many of the main female characters were flappers. In true life, flappers were out and about; they broke all the rules for how women should act. They cut their hair short, wore more reviling clothing, smoked and drank. In the book, they flapperish characters also acted that way. An example of this is when Myrtle gets drunk, her, and toms little social gathering and starts yelling at tom until she is smacked.
    Gambling was a great problem in the real 1920s, gambling could be found everywhere. In the book they show a part were Nick meets Mr. Wolfshiem and later he finds out that Wolfshiem was the man who set up the 1919 World's Series. People such as Tom Buchanon also suspected him of illegal bootlegging and gambling. To many, how he obtained his fortune was a mystery, rumors clouded over his frequent dinner parties of murder, extortion and racketterring, extortion , and suspected ties with Nazi Germany. Nick also suspects that Wolfshiem is involved in a slew of gambling dealings. Gambling was also found in the many speakeasies, or illegal bars. During the prohibition, people began to seek these underground “watering holes” and engage in other illegal activities.
    In addition to drinking and illegal gambling, the moral decay of the era is also an invaluable part of the 1920’s. Flappers, young girls who defied previous Victorian values.

    What you see when reading that is ASCII characters. Can you be a little more specific on what you want?

    you mean something simple like this:

    #include <fstream>

    int main()
    char ch;
    ofstream fout("GatsbyReport.txt");

    cout << "type in the stuff you want. To stop the input type a tilda (~)." << endl;

    while (ch != '~')
    cin >> ch;
    fout << ch;

    cout << "to read the article on Gatsby use the Find function and enter GatsbyReport for the search item. Double click on the file that is returned." << endl;

    return 0;

    Bah! How dare you defile our forums with your so-called 'leet speak'. Doom on you!
