Helloo..

I'm doing a project and i have assigned various values to structure members in my main program.. i wanted to know how i could transfer the data values from the structure into a text file for read and write operations.

In the main program the data is read in to the structure using an array.. so i want to pass the value each time to the seperate file before the end of the loop is reached...

I hope this makes sense and you can help!!!

it woudl help if youy posted the code....

since you want the structure in text, not binary, format, you will have to write out each data member individually and converted to an ASCII format.

You can use a fstream object to help you do this as it will do the conversion to ASCII and write the information in onse step.

example follows

since I don't know what information you have to write out, I'll make up a structure like

struct Data
{
    int i;
    double d;
    char c[10];
};


you would write the file like

fstream Fil("C:\\SOMENAME.TXT",ios::out);
Data D = ????;

Fil << D.i << ' ' << D.d << ' ' << D.c << endl;

Then you could read it like

fstream Fil("C:\SOMEFILE.TXT,ios::in);
Data D;

Fil >> D.i >> D.d >> D.c;

Let me know if you have any questions.   (I'll probably need more details from you though.)
