What is the difference between the STDIO.h FILE class and the iostream fstream class? Is one faster, more efficient?

FILE is C.
fstream is C++.

That's the difference.

c++ fstreams are be a bit safer to use, and any difference between them ( if there is one ) would be inconsequential compared to the cost of disk access.
