Write the class to a file

Using MSVC++ 6.0

I created a class and populated it.  Let's call it myclass.  Once it gets populated I want to write this class to a file.  I opened the file using CFile and the type of file that I want to send it to is binary.  Lets call the opened file infile.  I used the following command to write the class to the file:

             infile.Read(myclass, sizeof(myclass));

I get the following error when I try to compile the program:

C:\ARDSAVEN\ARDSAVENDlg.cpp(348) : error C2440: 'type cast' : cannot convert from 'class adrasaven' to 'char *'
        No user-defined-conversion operator available that can perform this conversion, or the operator cannot be called
Error executing cl.exe.

ARDSAVEN.exe - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

What is the proper command that I may use to write the class to a file????

If you class is a POD class, you can use the following:

infile.Read(&myclass, sizeof(myclass));

I tried that and I get a Debug Assertion Failed error, filecore.cpp when I execute the application.

I believe the way that you are doing it is on the right track.  the command is:

      myclass x;
      infile(&x, sizeof(class myclass));

Try it, it seems to work and you use the same for structures too!

lcrogers,
I believe I made that suggestion in my first comment.
