Majorly bamboozled by the wxwidgets file streams. does wxFileInputStream have a GetLine() function, similar to the normal c++ file stream class???
had a wander thru the wx docs, and just ended up more confused.
heres what i want to do btw.
(note, functions are seperate but operate on same file)
here is an example of a possible line for the file being read:
12345`99`KM00099/09`Hello World`Im a line`1token1`2token2`comments
open file, containing fields seperated by "`" symbols.
for each line in file:
extract the first field (a set of int's,).
convert this to integer var.
compares this to a variable containg the number of the last line.
keeps the larger of the two
returns the largest number in the first field
Exactly the same as above, but with second field rather than 1st.
Before function 3 is done, the user and program use the above to create a line similar to:
12346`100`KM00100/09`Hello World2`Im a line too`12ndlinetoken1`2blahblahtoken2`comments new entry
takes a line similar to above, as a wxstring, and appends it to the end of the file.
hope this all makes sence
thanks all muchly in advance.
