im just interested in getting all the character bytes in order to compress the file, but i cant read the whole file. It kgets to an end of file byte i suppose.

I presume p9.doc is an MS word file?

It might be returning bad characters (odd, but possible) which causes the stream to fail.

Try

fp.open("p9.doc",ios::binary);
