Consider the following code ....
#include <fstream.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>

class word
{
     char wrd[50];
public:
     void inpu()
     {
          cout<<"\n Enter the word ";
          gets(wrd);
     }
     void out()
     {
          cout<<"\n Word "<<wrd;
     }
};
void output()
{
     ifstream f;
     f.open("word.dat");
     word w;
     f.read((char*)&w,sizeof(w));
     while(!f.eof())
     {
           w.out();
           f.read((char*)&w,sizeof(w));
     }
     f.close();
}
void input()
{
     ofstream f;
     f.open("word.dat",ios::app);
     word w;
     w.inpu();
     f.write((char*)&w,sizeof(w));
     f.close();

}
void main()
{
     int ch;
     cout<<"\n 1. input 2.output \n enter the code ";
     cin>>ch;
     switch(ch)
     {
           case 1:
                  input();
                  break;

You seem to be using old c and C++.

Try using C++ includes:
  #include <fstream>
  #include <iostream>      
  using namespace std;
instead of
  #include <fstream.h>
  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <conio.h>

Use
  cin >> wrd;  
instead of  
  gets(wrd);

and get rid of
  getche();
