i want to know how to read all the message inside the file including their spacing,indents if possible using File Handling... can that be done?

content of data1.txt:

First Name: (TAB)John Doe
Last name:(TAB) Manly
Height:(TAB) 5'7
Weight:(TAB)164 kls
Address:(TAB)Somewhere but here,
(TAB)but not to far City.

here is my program:

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>
#include<string.h>

main()
{
FILE *fp1;
char x[100],y[100];
fp1=fopen("data1.txt","r");
while(!feof(fp1))
{ fscanf(fp1,"%s",&x);
printf("%s ",x);
}
fclose(fp1);
printf("\n\n");
system("pause");
}

can i use only one variable for all the content of the file??? i want to include all the grammars or spacing...can that be possible?

if my program is wrong from the start...please feel free to rewrite it...thank you all

use fgets() to read an entire line at one time. But since you are using c++ you really need to learn the <fstream> and <string> library fuctions.

#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
#include<stdlib.h>
#include<string.h>

int main()
{
FILE *fp1;
char line[255];
fp1=fopen("data1.txt","r");
while(fgets(line, sizeof(line), fp1) != NULL)
{ 
     printf("%s ",line);
}
fclose(fp1);
printf("\n\n");
system("pause");
}
