IndirectX> mm do you know ctrl+c ?

Read the data of the file and put it into a variable, then write the variable''s data into a new file..

here ya go:


  
#include <iostream>

#include <fstream>


int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
if (argc < != 2) cerr << "USAGE: copyfile <src> <dest>" << endl;

ifstream infile(argv[1],ios::in | ios::binary);
if (!infile.is_open()) cerr << "Couldn't open file " << argv1 << " for reading" endl;

infile.seekg(0,ios::end);
int filesize = infile.tellg();
infile.seekg(0,ios::beg);

ofstream outfile(argv[2],ios::out | ios::binary);
if (!outfile.is_open()) cerr " Couldn't open file " << argv[2] << " for writing" << endl;

char *buffer = new char[filesize];
infile.read(buffer,filesize);
outfile.write(buffer,filesize);
delete [] buffer;
return 0;
}
