Hello,

I have a text file that I am trying to read into a CString and then write the contents to another file.  It works well except it cut's off a few lines at the end of the original file.  I should mention that the original file is 1060 Kb in size and the copied file is 1058 Kb.  I have tried two different ways of doing it.  Both methods are shown below.  I would appreciate if anyone can help me out. Thx.

/*************METHOD 1*************************
CStdioFile theFile(_T("C:\\Test.txt"), CFile::modeRead | CFile::typeText);
CString origString;
CString finalString;
while(theFile.ReadString(origString))
{
      finalString += origString + " ";
}

ofstream saveTo("C:\\TestCopy.txt");
SaveTo << string(finalString);

/*************METHOD 2*************************

CString finalString = "";
string fileLine = "";
fstream file_stream("C:\\Test.txt", ios::in);
while(!file_stream.eof())
{
      file_stream >> fileLine;
      finalString += fileLine + " ";
}

ofstream saveTo("C:\\TestCopy.txt");
saveTo << string(finalString);


Thanks!

don't use CFile::typeText, it may cut some carriage return/newline character, you must handle your file as binary to obtain an exact copy. Also don't use STL string to acomplish this. Just use another CFile or CStdioFile object as output.
