You're not going to get too far with a post like this. You need to be a bit more specific about what you want to know. For example, if you have some example code that you have written and don't know where go from there, then post that with you question. If you need to read in data from a "table" in a file, then you need to ask a specific question about that, for example "How do I read in text data from a file", maybe with a small excerpt from the file in question. If you don't have the first clue about how to get started in C++, then you should ask your question about that. For example, "What are some good C++ learning resources on the web?", or "What is a good C++ introductory book?", or even "Help! Where do I start with C++??".
