Reading text into an array from a file

Hello!

I have a text file of approx 40,000 characters long and want to read it in character by character into an array...process it and then output it to a file. How do you read in for example 500 characters at a time...process them....then output the text to a new file. Then take the next 500 characters of the text and process that...etc.!

fstream InFil("C:\\SOURCE.TXT",ios_base::in);
fstream OutFil("C:\\DESTINATION.TXT",ios_base::out);

const int BufSiz = 500;
char Buffer[BufSiz];

while(true)
{
   int Len = InFil.readsome(Buffer,BufSiz);
   // process the data in Buffer, not that on the last read the data will only
   // be Len long, not BufSiz long.  So always use Len as the
   // length of the data.
   OutFil.write(buffer,Len);
   if (Len != BufSiz)
      break;
}
