Hi, I am new c++ programming and I need some help with my code.

I am supposed to create a Hangman game with a file and your supposed to be able to write new words to the file etc...

But I have problems with the code after the user have played two times the program shut downs. And I am also supposed to skip over empty lines and I have tried several things with the getline in the code but it just fails all the time. I am getting really frustrated with the code and any help would be very helpful.

// This will be a game of hangman
/*Komplettera, att man inte behöver ha tomt ord att gissa på. Se line 90. I main så skriver du över filen med ord hela tiden se line 37.*/
