here...theres something wrong it doesnt read all of the file and displays some annoying numbers..i think my code now is right but it isnt when i run the program..whats wrong with it?

#include<iostream.h>
#include<cstring.h>
#include<fstream.h>
struct grocery
{
int barcode;
string prodname;
string category;
float price;
} ;
int main()
{
grocery data[50];
ifstream in;
in.open("grocery.txt");
for(int i = 0;i<50; i++) //this can also be written as for(int i = 0; i < 50; i++) since the size is 50
{
in >> data[i].barcode >> data[i].prodname >> data[i].category >> data[i].price;
}
in.close();
for(int ind = 0;ind<50; ind++)
cout<<data[ind].barcode<<""<<data[ind].prodname<<""<<data[ind].category<<""<<data[ind].price;
return 0;
}

What is the output that you are getting?

Im pretty sure Walt would tell you this but you should use meaningful titles for your threads. Asking for a specific person to check out your code doesnt really say anything about what is going on.

I think you cant post a picture here so its like 539488e..some words are displayed...oh and the barcodes doesnt seem to work....for example instead of 0001 it only displays 1..im using turbo c++ 4.5 compiler by the way...

oh wait my bad...its kinda works now...i wonder how to put spaces

its fixed!!!

#include<iostream.h>
#include<cstring.h>
#include<fstream.h>
struct grocery
{
char barcode[5];
string prodname;
string category;
float price;
} ;
int main()
{
grocery data[50];
ifstream in;
in.open("grocery.txt");
for(int i = 0;i<50; i++) //this can also be written as for(int i = 0; i < 50; i++) since the size is 50
{
in >>data[i].barcode >> data[i].prodname >> data[i].category >> data[i].price;
}
in.close();
for(int ind = 0;ind<50; ind++)

cout<<" "<<data[ind].barcode<<" "<<data[ind].prodname<<" "<<data[ind].category<<" "<<data[ind].price<<"\n";
return 0;

}

You realize that by calling out Walt, you've guaranteed that he'll blast you for not using any formatting and for unnecessarily living in the 90s with Turbo C++, right?

Hmm, does this mean that Walt is the new Narue? Before it was always Narue's sharp tongue that everyone feared. ;)

NathanOliver: Im surprised I havent seen him yet.

Surprise!!!!

Nyahhhh, I just didn't get logged in for a while. I thought it was 48 hour befor you were missing...

Absolutely...

Formatting, yes. That was my first thought. As for Turbo, I really don't care with half the world stuck in the 80's. It's others that go ballistic over Turbo. I personally like Borland. I can carry it with me.
