Int in filename

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
   fstream f;
   
   int Number;

   f.open( *FILE PATH HERE* , ios::out);

I want to open a txt document in the c drive called "A__.txt"  (where the "__" is replaced with whatever value Number is).  My question is how I can combine "c:\\A" + Number + ".txt" to put into the file path.

Use a variable for type char*(say char * str)

Initialise it with the initial string i.e. c:\........

Then using strcat, concatenate the value in Number into it and then concatenate ".txt. to the str

Then use the str in place of the filename in f.open
bcladdCommented:
Or, in a slightly more C++-ish manner you can use strstream:

#include <string>
#include <strstream>

...

     int Number = /* some value set */;

    strstream convert;
    convert << "A" << Number << ".txt";
 
    string fName;
    convert >> fName;

    // Now use fName as the name of your file and you are golden

Sorry- Forgot

using namespace std;

(or the name of the class is std::strstream)

bcladd-

fName needs to be a char not a string though
bcladdCommented:
Use the c_str() method to return a pointer at a C-style string containing the information in a std::string:

ifstream input(fName.c_str());
