Right now I'm reading up on the chapter "File Processing" to help me quench my thirst for putting C++ to USE in the real world. Seems to be the most powerful subject so far.

I answered your question in the original thread that you asked it, but for convenience I'll copy the answer here:

>Can you please clarify the difference between Sequential Access Files and Random Access Files?

If you did get fired, with your knowledge of C++ and my B2B sales savvy we could open our own Software Solutions company.
