Easy Archiving

I am using an archive to save a CString to a  text file.
When I open the file for viewing (NOTEPAD) there are
characters inserted at the beginning of the file.  What
are they and how can I get rid of them?

An archive contains information use to recreate objects, not just the information in the objects.  Thus an archive of a CString contains more than text of the string.  it contains information that says that a CString is stored in the archive  (and other info as well.)

You don't get rid of them.  But if you just want a file that has the contents of a string (or many strings), then you don't want an archive.  For that, you can use a C++ file stream and write the string to the file stream with the << operator.  The << operator for a file stream and a string will write the contents of the string only, it will not create an archive that indicates the type of data being written.

Let me know if you have questions.
