Hi,
in a very SIMPLE way,
how can I skip the name and only enter the age into my array?
I would like to skip the names without creating an array for them.
#include<iostream>
#include<fstream>
#include<string>

using namespace std;

int main(){
	fstream f;
	 string age[2];

	f.open("data.txt");
	for(int i=0; i<2; ++i)
		f>>age[i];
	f.close();
return 0;
}

Open in new window

data.txt

By reading the name into a dummy variable that you only use for skipping them, e.g.
#include<iostream>
#include<fstream>
#include<string>

using namespace std;

int main(){
	fstream f;
	 string age[2];
         string dummy;

	f.open("data.txt");
	for(int i=0; i<2; ++i)
                f >> dummy; // skip the 1st field
		f>>age[i]; // store the 2nd one
	f.close();
return 0;
}
