Going to next line while reading from file

I am doing some data acquisition stuff and happen to have as much as 8000 sets of numbers in one line and each number being at least 8 digits 8*8000 is a big number for me to use with //getline(buffer,max)//for the buffer(waste of memory).I want to read a number in between those 8000 sets which I can and I need to go to the next line after that is there an option while reading from a file to go to the next line without using getline(buffer,max)command......

Since this is a file that you are reading, the only way to know where the end of line character '\n' is, is to read the data.  The system doesn't know any better than you do where the line is.

I would use CFile::Read or CFile::ReadHuge to read it since it is probably going to read your data *anyway*.  Most read commands will get a chunk of memory from the disk and cache it.

No, I don't believe that there is a command to skip to the next line.  But leave this open for a while for descenting opinions.  (There are always some).
