For some reason, when I compile (in Borland C++ 5.0) and run this, if there is a file named SETTINGS.INI or not, it thinks there is. Anyone see if im doing anthing wrong, or is it a Borland thing?
void checkSettings()
{
ifstream settings("SETTINGS.INI", ios::nocreate);
   if(settings.bad()) 
      makeSettings()
   }
settings.close();
openSettings();
}

void makeSettings()
{
ofstream settings("SETTINGS.INI");
settings << "Line1\r\nLine2\r\n";
settings.close()
}

void openSettings()
{
char[256] Line1;
char[256] Line2;
ifstream settings("SETTINGS.INI", ios::nocreate);
settings >> Line1 >> Line2;
settings.close();
}

I always used:

if (!file)

rather than

if (file.bad())

and that seems to work for me. But, I haven''t checked the iostream specifications recently and don''t know if that''s technically correct. Perhaps ''bad'' is the flag that indicates something is broken, and you need the ''fail'' flag instead?
