Hi. I've just started C++ recently and i want to know how to get the data from a file into the program to store it as a char.
I can open the file and make it show the contents in dos when running my console, however, i want to be able to use this in a cin >>. I have tried to place "cin >>" after the data is inputted, but this doesn't work.

Any help
?
Thanks
