File reading question

Recommended Posts

I think what you are looking for is fscanf.

Try starting on the Stream I/O page on MSDN.

Look for fscanf. You know when you use a printf and you want to format it as an int then a string then maybe a double and you go something like "%d, %s, %.2lf", someInt, someString, someFloat? Well fscanf will let you do the same thing but reading in from a file stream. So if you are reading in lines from a file you would open the file with fopen and then...

fscanf( stream, "%d %s %lf", &someInt, &someString, &someFloat );
