I''ve been working on a little program, and need to open a file, but one that the user defines (and, therefore, one that is defined at at runtime). I''ve tried using strings and character arrays for the file path, but neither want to pass to the fstream open() function. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

char szFile[256];
cout << "Enter a filename: ";
cin.getline(szFile, 255);

ofstream ofFile;
ofFile.open(szFile, ... );

I don''t see why that wouldn''t work.
