I need help with inputing the file.
The file has the "lastName" "firstName" "phoneNumber" "email" then a new line. When i read in all 4 rows it says the first line in all 4 rows.


the infile is in main

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

couple things:

You are using cstring library functions, without explicitly including the <cstring> header. If it works, hey that's fine. Just letting you know.

By putting your array counter at the beginning, you'll always skip over element[0]... I think this is why you are reading the same thing over and over whenever you try to access the first element of your arrays:

while(inFile)
	{
		count++;
		inFile >> lastName[count];
		inFile >> firstName[count];
		inFile >> phoneNumber[count];
		inFile >> email[count];
	}

I would put your counter at the end, so your first loop iteration will result in count equal to zero.
