Hi all, any help would be greatly appreciated. This program is supposed to allow the user to read in a txt file with ingredients for recipes. We were asked to use the fstream and to use functions to read in the info and display it. I am new to this and have the following error message I can't figure out..
I don't know how to add numbers to the left of the code but the red marked line is at line 54 which begins the function that has the errors in it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

lines 64,76,78,89, 95,96
no matching function for call to getline(std::basic_ifstream<char, std::char_traits<char> >double&)
same msg for lines 80, 97 only replace double with bool

Edited 3 Years Ago by Dani: Formatting fixed

getline(indata, temp[num].time);

See that value, temp[num].time? That's a double. The getline function doesn't know what to do with it. It only knows what to do with strings.

temp[num].isEasy - that's a bool. The getline function doesn't know what to do with it. It only knows what to do with strings.

Likewise with all the others. getline only knows what to do with a string as the second parameter.

Thank you so much for your help with that! I was working at it for hours and I couldn't figure out what the problem was. That fixed all the error messages. Now I just need to figure out why it gets stuck when I run it! Wish me luck!
