hallo,
new to c++,i have written a code to write a data ,

  FILE *file;
  file = fopen(fileName,"r");
  ofstream wfile(writefileName);
   
  wfile << "#VRML V2.0 utf8"<<endl;
  wfile << "#Wilson"<<endl;
   
   d = 0;
   while ((str = fgets(line,LINESIZE,file)) && !feof(file))
      {
      if (!strcmp(token,"v")) {

        wfile << "#" << endl;
      cout<<"wfile write ... "<<endl;
      ...........
               }
        }


but after it works,there r only

You are not verifying that the input file was opened successfully:

file = fopen(fileName,"r");

if (!file) {

  cout << "FAILED to open " << fileName << endl;
}

So, it might just be that the file could not be found.

btw, it is in general not a good idea to mix C style IO with C++ - why not using an 'ifstream' for the input?

i have written
if (!strcmp(token,"v")) {
    cout<<"v read..."
    ....
it works,so i think it opens seccessfully

and i found with sscanf and fscanf much easier than get() and getline for input and ofstream << for output(code easier han fwrite)

its really the problem cause mix?

maybe if you put str= fgets(line,LINESIZE,file) outside the while condition

Why "token"? May be "str"?

And keep in mind that the strcmp() does case-dependent comparison.
It mean that the "#" will be written to out-file when you read exactly "v" from in-file only.

i have defined before
char token[1000];


and i have written
if (!strcmp(token,"v")) {
    cout<<"v read..."

it works when compiler
so i thinks it has read "v" successfully

Does the:

cout<<"wfile write ... "<<endl;

output show up on stdout?
