Reading text file

Hi all,

I'm trying to read a simple text file to a dynamic array(self built class) of employee records (self built class) but have not succeeded. As I debug, the program didn't read anything from the file to the temporary variables (not touching any class here).

I've tried the sample of some of the solution posted here but they didn't help. I'd really appreciate that if any of you experts can help me make this program work.

I'm attaching the code of these files.


/*main.cpp*/
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <iostream>
#include "EmpRec.h"
#include "Array.h"*/

void main()
{
      Array a;
      a.Read ("database.txt");
      a.Print ();
}


/*EmpREc.h*/

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#ifndef EmpRec_H_INCLUDE_GUARD
#define EmpRec_H_INCLUDE_GUARD


class EmpRec
{
      private:
            char *LastName;
            char *FirstName;
            char *EmpID;
            long Salary;
            char *Dept;
            char *PhoneNo;
            char *OfficeNo;
            char *HireDate;
            char *EmailAdd;
      public:
      EmpRec (const char *lname = NULL, const char *fname =NULL, const char *ID=NULL, const long EmpSalary =0, const char *department =NULL, const char *phone =NULL, const char *office =NULL, const char *date =NULL, const char *email =NULL)
      {
            strcpy (LastName, lname);
            strcpy (FirstName, fname);
            strcpy (EmpID, ID);
            Salary = EmpSalary;
            strcpy (Dept, department);
            strcpy (PhoneNo, phone);
            strcpy (OfficeNo, office);
            strcpy (HireDate, date);
            strcpy (EmailAdd, email);
      }
      void GetRecord(EmpRec * Node);
      void PrintRecord();
      char * getLastName();
      char * getFirstName();
      char * getEmpID();
      long getSalary();
      char *getDept();
      char *getPhoneNo();
      char *getOfficeNo();
      char *getHireDate();
      char * getEmailAdd();
      void DeleteRec();
};

#endif

/*Array.h*/
#include <stdio.h>
#include "EmpRec.h"

class Array
{
private:
      int size;
      EmpRec *listArray;
public:
      Array(int n);
      Array(){size =0,listArray=NULL;}
      ~Array() {delete [] listArray;}
      void Read(char *filename);
      void Save( char *filename);
      void Delete(int position);
      void Print();
};

/*Array.cpp*/
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <fstream.h>
#include "Array.h"
#include "EmpRec.h"
#include <iostream>


void Array::Read (char *filename)
{
      char *crap = NULL;
      char * lastname =NULL;
      char *firstname =NULL;
      char *ID =NULL;
      long salary =0;
      char *department =NULL;
      char *phone =NULL;
      char *office =NULL;
      char *date =NULL;
      char *email =NULL;
      ifstream filein;

      filein.open(filename, ios::in);
      if ( !filein.fail() )
      {
            size =0;
            while (!filein.eof())
            {
                  filein >> lastname;  //nothing read to lastname...
                  filein >> firstname;
                  filein >> ID;
                  filein >> salary;
                  filein >> department;
                  filein >> phone;
                  filein >> office;
                  filein >> date;
                  filein >> email;
                                                filein >> crap;
            }
            listArray[size++] = EmpRec(lastname, firstname, ID, salary, department, phone, office, date, email);
            filein.close();
      }
      else
            cerr << "ERROR: Cannot open file\r\n";
}

void Array::Print()
{
      int i=0;
      if (size==0)
            cout << "Array is empty";
      else
            for (i=0; i<size; i++)
                  cout << listArray[i].getLastName();
}

Array::Array(int n)
{
      size = n;
      listArray = new EmpRec[n];
}

The text file looks like:

The EmpRec implementation file is missing.

The trouble with using operator<< is that "Data Processing" will be parsed as two tokens.

Use getline()
