Hi experts,

I have the file  data.dat with 2 columns such as this:

12asb24   31niel93
89bhgj83   57yv76
...
32dae56  49jsn01

with N data.
I need read the file using "ifstream" , not FILE .   and store it in a matrix with dimention of N x 2 .

any idea? thanks a lot. !

#include <string>
#include <fstream>
#include <sstream>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

   struct Record
   {
       std::string s1;
       std::string s2;
       Record(const std::string& s)
       {
               std::istringstream iss(s);
               iss >> s1 >> s2;
       }
   };

int readData(const string& filename, vector<Record>& v)
{
   ifstream ifs(filename.c_str);
   string line;
   while (getline(ifs, line))
        v.push_back(Record(line));
   ifs.close();
   return v.size();
}

Hi Alex thanks !!

In order to use the function only is with a call like this?   rigth?

main(){
....
vector<Record> x;
..........
int  val= readData("data.dat", x);

Well   I have this error msg   :(

main.cc: In function ‘int readData(const std::string&, std::vector<Record, std::allocator<Record> >&)’:main.cc:38: error: no matching function for call to ‘std::basic_ifstream<char, std::char_traits<char> >::basic_ifstream(<unresolved overloaded function type>)’

It needs to be

     ifstream ifs(filename.c_str());

It was a typo.

>>>> with a call like this?   rigth?

Yes, beside that main should have an int type and should return 0   ;-)
