Basically I'm trying to get my program to open up a file, read all the lines and then make them into variables (will most likely be an array (or vector)) in the program. How would I go about doing this?

Since you mentioned vector, I'm prepared to assume C++ (perhaps wrongly). It is actually pretty simple if you use the standard library.


std::vector<std::string> Lines;

bool LoadFile(const std::string &Path)
{
std::ifstream is(Path.c_str()); if(is.fail()) return false;

std::string S;
while(!is.eof())
{
std::getline(is,S);
Lines.push_back(S);
}

return true;
}
