Hey guys i need help with my program. What I need to do is to open to inout files. one containing the accout numbers with there names and balance. the second is the transactin history with accout num ie 123 d45.67 d 56.78 w 78.99. My problem is that i get the files to open and the first read into an array of structs but i dont really now how to read the d and w. I was fooling with peek but dosnt work. i know my code might not look the best im still new at this.

int fillArrayT( PersonAcct customerArray[7], ifstream& inFileT)
{
	int i=0;
	int j = 0;
	double tempdeposit = 0;
	double tempwithdrawl = 0;
	char ch;
	int temp_acct_num;
	
inFileT >> temp_acct_num;
	while ( !inFileT.eof())
	{
		
		 /* cout << " tempdeposit" << tempdeposit << endl; // testing purpose
		cout <<" temp_acct_num" << temp_acct_num << endl;// testing purpose
	cout << " costumer deposit: " << customerArray[i].deposit <<" costumer withdrawl : " << customerArray[i].withdrawl << endl;// testing purpose
	i++; // testing purpose */
		for ( j = 0 ; j<6; j++)
		{ 
			if (temp_acct_num == customerArray[j].acct_num)
			{
				do
				{
					ch = inFileT.peek();

					if (ch == 'd' || ch == 'D')
					{
						customerArray[j].deposit = 0;
						inFileT >> tempdeposit ;
							customerArray[j].deposit += tempdeposit;
					}
					else if ( ch =='w' || ch == 'W')
					{
						customerArray[j].withdrawl = 0;
						inFileT >> tempwithdrawl;
							customerArray[j].withdrawl -=	tempwithdrawl;
					}
				}while(ch== 'd' || ch == 'w');
					

					break;
			}
		}
	}
	return i;
}

Please copy and paste the actual contents of the first few entries in the transction file so we can see what it really looks like. If there is a space between d or w and the value then reading the file should be easy and straight forward

char action;
float value;
int accountno;
string line;
while( getline(in,line) )
{
   stringstream s;
   s << line;
   s >> accountno;
   while(s >> action >> value)
   {
     switch(action)
     {
       case 'd': // deposit
         break;
       case 'w': // withdrawal
         break;
     }
   }
}

123 d45.10 d50.45 d198.56 w45.67
345 w34.00 d4.56 w45.13 d23.23 w23.12
639 d1000.34 d1234.56 w34.33 w

THATS THE FIRST 3 LINES

Ok -- the code I posted will work with that file. This is the test I ran on it

#include <string>
#include <sstream>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{

    string line = "123 d45.10 d50.45 d198.56 w45.67";
    char action;
    float value;
    int acctno;
    stringstream s;
    s << line;
    s >> acctno;
    while( s >> action >> value)
    {
        cout << action << " " << value << '\n';
    }
}

ok I understand now how to use the switch properly but im still haveing trouble. when i print out the values to make sure they read properly i get the lest entered value for with drawll and deposit stored there and garbage for the rest of the account nums

and this is a run of my program

int fillArrayT( PersonAcct customerArray[7], ifstream& inFileT)
{

	char tranType;
	float amount;
	int accountno;
	int i;


	while(!inFileT.eof())
	{
		inFileT >> accountno; 
		for ( i = 0 ; i < 6 ; i++)

						break;    
					}   
				}

		}

	}

this is is main

for ( i=0 ; i<5 ;i++)
cout << customerArray[i].acct_num << customerArray[i].name << customerArray[i].acct_bal << customerArray[i].deposit << customerArray[i].withdrawl << customerArray[i].timesD << customerArray[i].timesW;
