Just to let you know, that doesn't read 24 characters if a whitespace is encountered before the limit. To read a variable number of characters, either do a raw fread to get so many characters, or use basic_istream::get. Set the delimiter to some bogus value and it will read whitespace. If you're not using the C++ library, then fread would be your best bet.

Or you can build the format-string in fscanf dynamically.

char format[16];
sprintf(format, "%%%ic", numberofchars);
fscanf(stream2, format, max_elev);
