My program reads input file and writes to output file, but it only writes 250 char length in one line and then writes the rest of chars to the second line.

How can I fix that to make my program writes all the chars to one line ?

or I should ask this way : whats the maximum char length I can have on one line ?

Thanks

Hi justinY,

Please show us your code for the read/write operations.

the following is my code. It works well with short output file.
But with this long output length. It writes first 250 char length onto one line and writes the rest chars to next line.

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>
#include <cstdio>

using namespace std;

const int MaxSize=1024;

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Custom version of strtok(), fixing empty field problem
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
char* MyStrTok(char* text, const char del)
{
    static char *curTok = NULL;
    char *result = NULL;
    if ( text != NULL )
    {
        curTok = text;
    }
    result = curTok;
    if ( curTok != NULL )
    {
        curTok = ::strchr(curTok, del);
        if ( curTok != NULL ) *curTok++ = 0;
    }

    return result;
};

//////////////////////////////////////////

      char buf[MaxSize];
      while (src[i] != '\0' )

            if (src[i] == delim)
            {
                  i++;
                  continue;
            }
            buf[j++]=src[i];
            i++;
      }
      buf[j] = '\0';
      strcpy(src,buf);

I should say this way:
on my fout.txt file, It writes first 250 ( or less than 250 ) char length onto one line and writes the rest chars to next line.

Never Mind guys. False alarm. It has something to do with the monitor settings.
I opened this same file on different monitors. One flat panel gives me displaying all on one line. But my big old one gives me two lines.

hi,
your problem doesn't relate to your monitor, it's just about the editor you use to view the file.

have a good programming day;

He only wants to tell you that depending on which editor you use it may be possible to have different settings for the length of a line. But since we don't know OS/Editor you are using there is not much more to say.

In View->Options you can set word wrapping. Set it to 'no wrap' and it will show real lines.

in some editors -likes 'word pad' that you use for viewing text files- the "no wrap" option is off by default and your lines wraps in the editor, so you must on this option for your editor.

have a good programming day.
