I need to know how you go about having a program export to a text or another format. I am currently working on an assignment trying to create a small resume prog that will export to a text file or XML. Anyone hoave any examples on how to perform that function?

look up fstreams.

specifically you want to open an ofstream to a file you create, from there you can "cout" the same way you do to the monitor, but instead of couting you use the ofstream to write it to the file.  Just close the file when you're done.

below is a reference that has some examples:

#include <fstream>

            std::ofstream databaselist("databaselist.txt");
            databaselist<<"database list of test"<<std::endl;
for(int i=0;i<3;i++)
