    If you mean File I/O
    ie, to be able to output to a text file... There are many tutorials about this, and think there is one on this site...
    If you want to see how does it look like, here is an example:
    #include <fstream>     //to use file i/o
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>     //To use exit();
    using namespace std;
    int main()
         ofstream outFile("output.txt", ios::out);
         if ( !outFile )
              cerr << "Output file cannot be opened";
         //here is where you output to the file.
         outFile << "This is my first output to a file in C++";
         return 0;
    Just read some tutorials for more detailes, like the modes you can open a file with, and you should also learn i/o in binary mode...
    And if you have any further questions, post them here...
