I have written up a c++ program that will read from a file. The file consists of only numbers ( from 1 to 50) and spaces with no other special characters. The main aim of the program is to tell me how many times the numbers appeared in the file but whenever i run my program it always hangs. Any help is appreciated.

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

int main()
int num;
int A[50];
ifstream infile;

for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++)
A = 0;


infile >> num;

while (!infile.eof())

for (int j = 0; j < 50; j++)
if (num == j)
A[j] = A[j] + 1;

infile >> num;

for (int k = 0; k < 50 ; k++)
cout << k <<" appeared " <<A[k] << " times " << endl;

Please use code tags when posting code, it makes it much more readable for us.

This question seems to appear over and over again. Maybe someone can make example here: http://programmingexamples.net/index.php?title=CPP#I.2FO of "correctly" reading a file one character at a time as well as one line at a time. I think this would get heavily re-used.

To actually count the characters, you should use: http://programmingexamples.net/index.php?title=CPP/Strings/CountCharacters
