fstream.h

Where can I find more information on the fstream header file?

I know eof() checks for end of file, get() reads in a char, etc, but where can I find the list of what all the functions of the class do?

Trying to break away from C filehandling and get into this, because I've heard its better.

Thanks! - Magecast

The IOStreams Handbook has detailed explanations about this. However, it is a bit dated and there were some changes made since then.

For an online source, try http://www.dinkumware.com/htm_cpl/fstream.html .

Also, you can try the documantion that comes with your compiler...

Hi
Use your tools menu in your explorer menu to find ".h" files and print the fstream.h file
or which ever one you want this will give you exact contents of the header and what to expect. Gene2000
