I need help with writing a program using a function called "X" that accesses a file called "Y" and locates a specific word "W" in the Y file, then outputs the line number where W is located.

Define "help", because I get the impression you want someone to do it for you.

Not at all Narue, I just can't seem to get it to run properly. My code compiles and builds, but the infile.fail boolean keeps saying that the file was not successfully open. I was referred to this site to get help
with any problems that more experienced programmers than myself could help. Either I was wrong, or you're not the one to help me.

Apparently I'm not the one to help you because when you don't post the code or describe the problem adequately, what you really need is a psychic.
