Hi, I need to display the contents of pointer s2 into the file data.txt: std::ofstream cached ("data.txt"); const char *s2 = r._return.resultElements.__ptr.URL; printf("\tURL = %s\n", s2?s2:"<NONE>"); Now what? "cached << *s2;" doesnt work...

Assuming s2 is a properly null-terminated C-style string, this should work: cached << s2;

What do you mean by "doesn't work"? Assuming that s2 is a properly null-terminated string, there should be no problem.
The way he has it puts the first character of the string.

Wouldn't it put the first character of s2 in the file?
Yeah, my mistake. [wink]

wait... what do u mean by null terminated?
A \0 char at the end. Any string with double quotes (") will be null-terminated, eg const char * moo = "This is a null-terminated string.";
