    Question Help with redirection

    Hi everyone, I have a problem where when I do a redirection, I keep getting an infinite loop. Is there a way I can read a data file until it ends, and that ends the program? Right now, this is just a snippet of the code that loops a cin statement to keep the program running. If I wanted to "a.out < inputfile", it will continue going unless exit is somewhere in the file. Is there a way I can just use a eof() thingy or something similar that will stop running the loop if the end of the data file is reached? THanks in advance for any help


      cin >> search;
      while (search != "exit") {;
        cin >> search;

    It reads until EOF.
    Nothing more to tell about me...
    Happy day =)
