help needed ( urgent )

I have the following code that reads in a .txt file and stores it into an array.

A typical .txt file format that I would want to read in is :

6
22533
17414
40266
2048
1
0
5
33
45

etc...

Now the little program I have reads the file and stores each line as characters ( I THINK ! ). This is no good since I can not perform any mathematical operation on the contents of the array.

Does anyone know how to modify the program so that it reads in the file and stores the contens as numbers in the array.

The code is
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <iostream.h>
#define MAX_LINE 20

void main( void )
{
     FILE *stream;
     char line[MAX_LINE];
     char *array[1000];
      int nCount = 0;
      const int ArSize = 12 ;
      char file[ArSize] ;
      cout<< "Enter file name to load please : " ;
      cin >> file ;
                           

     if( (stream = fopen( file, "r" )) != NULL )
     {
         while ( fgets( line, MAX_LINE, stream ) != NULL)
         {
                               
            array[nCount] = new char[strlen(line)+1];
            strcpy(array[nCount], line);
            nCount++;
                     }
           fclose( stream );
           }

          printf("readed lines %d\n", nCount);

// Don't for get to delete all the Array elements before leaving!

      cout << array[8] << "\n"
}


Cheers...

I changed your program so that it uses an Array of int instead of an array of char*. I used atoi to convert the string to a int.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>   // FOR atoi
#include <iostream.h>
#define MAX_LINE 20

void main( void )
{
 FILE *stream;
 char line[MAX_LINE];
 int array[1000];     // CHANGED ARRAY-TYPE TO INT
 int nCount = 0;
 const int ArSize = 12 ;
 char file[ArSize] ;
 cout<< "Enter file name to load please : " ;
 cin >> file ;
                     

 if( (stream = fopen( file, "r" )) != NULL )
 {
   while ( fgets( line, MAX_LINE, stream ) != NULL)
     // USED atoi to convert string to integer
     array[nCount++] = atoi(line);
   fclose( stream );
 }
}
