How do you read one individual character from a file? I'm trying to load the file into a two-dimensional array, but i don't know how to get the character. is there a simple function? I'm using C++.

#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

{
fstream input( "myfile.txt", ios::in );
char tile;
while( tilesInFile( ) ) {
input >> tile;
useTile( tile );
}
}



Also, google for fstream.

evillive2: you leaked your file handle. Don't forget to close it.

OP: if using evillive2's method with a C++ compiler, you must include <cstdio> instead of <stdio.h>.
