Howdy there all again. I have been working in C# for some time and think i am ready to graduate to a real language that can actually work hand in hand with memory managment :P
so my first venture is to write a piece of software that will open a file and allow me to make edits to it (it will be an xml file that contains information for my customers)
My current problem is that i do not know how to open a file for reading.
i have no problem calling the file reading ability of C++!! but it is very confusing to me at best. This was easily done in C# but then again im not supprised, my dad calls that language a sissy language :lol: (he's been programming since pascal and fortran! punchcards for the win)
so basically ive looked online at some tutorials but im not quite sure what to do.
i just want to open the file for reading and read through it line by line parsing out the input from the file looking for certain strings of text that need to be edited.
im not worried about the former part, im just interested in learning out to open files for reading!
thanks to all that can help, if any more information is needed just say so!
