Hey guys. I just learn about magic numbers today. I am trying to make a program that uses fstream along with magic numbers to tell what a file is. Example the magic numbers for jpg are ff d8 ff e0. How do i check a file to see if its a jpg using these numbers. I want to read the first part of the file from my understanding of magic numbers. They should be at the top of the file. A simple example of how to read using magic numbers would be appreciated
