this program giving error while concatenation of two string in which s1 has been changed from in type to string.... main purpose of doing this to handle multiple files in my src folder by changing s1.....plz help why giving error

now the problem is that i have two txt files (1.txt and 2.txt) in my source folder.
but this program running only 1.txt file.content of the 1.txt file is abb so the outcome should be sara 1 and ri 2 but the,output is sara 0 and ri 3 plz help whats gone wrong...and for multiple file accessing also.....

#include <iostream.h>
#include <fstream.h>/*
* Input using cin*/
int main ()
{char myline[256];
int lc = 0;
ofstream outfile("demo.txt",ios::app);
ifstream infile("stdcodes.xyz");
if (! infile)
{cerr << "Failed to open input file\n";
exit(1);
}

Try putting infile >> num after the switch statement in the while() loop:

indata >> num;
       while ( !indata.eof() ) { // keep reading until end-of-file
          
          switch(num){
                      case 'a':sara+=1;break;
                      case 'b':ri+=1;break;
                      case 'c':sat+=1;break;
                      case 'd':ha+=1;break;}
          indata >> num;
           // sets EOF flag if no value found
       }

A better loop does not use eof()

while ( indata >> num ) { // keep reading until end-of-file
          
          switch(num){
                      case 'a':sara+=1;break;
                      case 'b':ri+=1;break;
                      case 'c':sat+=1;break;
                      case 'd':ha+=1;break;
                      default: cout << "oops!\n"; break;
          }
           // sets EOF flag if no value found
       }
