Hello All,

I'm creating a program that reads a file.dat and I need to input that in a matrix, it can be 2x2,3x3,4x4 or 5x5. I'm not exactly sure how to do that.
The file.dat looks like this:

2 1 2 3 5
3 1 3 8 5 7 3 9 2 4
2 1 5 2 3
3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3

Notice the spaces..

The first number in the line, for example 2 1 2 3 5, 2 means that its going to be a matrix 2x2.

Thanks in advance,

Doug

int n;
//read the first number from the file
int* x=new int[n];
for(int i=0;i<n;i++)
for(int j=0;j<n;j++)
//read element element from file and store
//in matrix
x[j]=elem;

So, right now my function looks like this:

for(int i=0;i<Size;i++)
for(int j=0;j<Size;j++)
{
myfile >> MagSq[j];
cout << MagSq[j] << endl;
}

Is that what you said?

I did some operations and I came with this,

function::Input_Values()
{
	ifstream myfile ("file.dat");
	stringstream input;

	ifstream myfile ("Magic.dat");
	stringstream input;
	for(int i=0;i<Size;i++)
	for(int j=0;j<Size;j++)
	{
		while(!myfile.eof())
		myfile.getline(MagSq[i][j], Size);
		cout << MagSq[i][j] << endl;
	}
}

MagSq is in my header file and Size as well, so

Compile error: c error C2664: 'std::basic_istream<_Elem,_Traits> &std::basic_istream<_Elem,_Traits>::getline(_Elem *,std::streamsize)' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'int' to 'char *'

However I get a weird std error..

I might paraphrase that deeply nested attempt to fill the array like this: "read the whole array (somehow) into each and every cell in the two dimensional array".

here you are the complete code

//the file content
2 6 5 8 4
3 6 5 4 7 8 9 2 5 8
2 6 9 7 4
4 7 8 9 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 2 5 8 7

i will be happy if i help you 
good bye[code=c++]
