1.  You can use the member m_hFile which is a file handle and do all the work with that.

-- or --

2.  You can read until end of file
char buf[100];
UINT u_bytes_read = pFile->Read(buf, sizeof(buf));
if (u_bytes_read != sizeof(buf)) {
//end of file encountered
}

Use GetStatus to check for errors

you use the functions ReadFile and WriteFile on the handle, BUT
you would probably want to use the CFile::ReadFile and CFile::WriteFile which are generally wrappers for these functions but will maintain the state of the object as well.  Using the m_hFile is a way around the class when in fact what you want to do is probably supported already.

also, as far as ferror is concerned, you can use GetLastError(); and the CFile class will throw exceptions, so you can use a try/catch block.
