Streams are a flexible and object-oriented approach to I/O. In this chapter, we will see how to use streams for data output and input. We will also learn how to use. C++ has support both for input and output with files through the following classes: ofstream: File class for writing operations (derived from ostream); ifstream: File. File I/O in C++ works very similarly to normal I/O (with a few minor added complexities). There are 3 basic file I/O classes in C++: ifstream.

File handling is as simple as writing in a book, much easier to modify and find. We divide the total file size by the size of the structure to find the number of record.

Input/output with files

The “serial” nature of streams is a very important element of their interface. With encryption you can scramble the fztream so people can read it. Thanks so much Jubulani. Our first program sends some of its output to the screen and some to a text file. It also allows you nearly limitless freedom to manipulate those streams both using object oriented interfaces and working directly on character buffers when necessary.


If we had to write a seperate function rstream split and write each member, brrr horrors. Alex, Fstfeam the lesson you have mentioned: Using both VS and VS However, this is extremely simple: You can combine two or more of these values by OR ing them together.

The class of an input file stream variable is ifstream and the class of an output file stream variable is ofstream. September 7, at 8: They allow you a lot of control about the exact way you want to read a value from the stream into the given variable or write the variable to the stream. As always, please take a gander at my book on C at http: Both tellp and tellg don’t take any parameters but return where the pointer location in bytes.

October 23, at 8: There you go a new word was added to the file. May 18, at Not sure which one fshream. You are most welcome ; I also have a new xlock i.

And even when I got my own text book nothing what so ever was mentioned about random file access except a short and vague description about the 2 functions and the options. It is susceptible to patterns, but this weakness can be avoided through first compressing the file so as to remove patterns.

C++ tutorial: , Input/Output with files

March 29, at 6: I can’t guess why! An example of creating a stream-enabled object Here is a simple example of an utility designed for writing out logfile entries from command line turorial that takes advantage of some important stream facilities.


Therefore, improper data cannot sneak through the system unlike in C, where allowing for some subtle errors. But I’d like to be sure about this.

C++ File I/O Tutorial –

June 22, at 9: This parameter is called mode, and the valid flags that it accepts live in the Ios class. I mean, with your example, I’d like to see: September 13, at Then why does the following code work?

As we have just seen in the program above, an output file stream is an object of the data fsteeam ofstream. One becomes good at programming by doing and making mistakes.

Here is a very very simple example of writing to a file: One of the most commonly used mode is ios:: This site uses cookies. To open a file, a filestream object should first be created.
