Hi, I am trying to write octal data to file but I get a bunch of weird numbers instead - currently I am doing it the following way - which I know is wrong
file << info << std::endl;

I also tried the following
file <<std::ios::oct << info << std::endl;

But this does not work either. Could anyone tell me how to write octal data to file so that it shows up like a string Currently this is what I see in the file \327\255\222)\220\235^Y\322/\320\244\303\3054\273^Fa@$h Thanks

What is "info", what does it contain, and what exactly do you wish to view in the output?

ie: if "info" is an integer containing 123456, do you want to see 361100?

I have a string which is hashed using a MD5 algorithm using crypt library in solaris and now I am trying to write this encrypted string to file. "info" is the encrypted string. However in vi editor I get that output with escape sequences.

Thanks
