end of the file

For every line i want to read every value between ³, for example  the values "1", "7301270", "colibri srl", "2270365", "8-10-2004", "158135.00" and then, put them in variables(first value-int, second-int, third-*char or char[]. and so on). How can a do that?THNX!
PS: How can i write the values to another txt file?

    If you're allowed to use a more appropriate tool, like awk, or Perl, or even Excel, it's a one-liner.

    In C++, it's harder.  You could call the ancient strtok(), with it's many (shudder) features.  Or use the string functions to find the position of each delimiter, and use the string extract functions to get the pieces out.
