Is there anyway to get the filename from an ifstream or ofstream object that has already opened a file? For example ofstream streamout("FileToBeOpened"); Is there anyway to get "FileToBeOpened" from streamout, after I have written that line? I do''t think there is (after alot of searching) but I want to make sure as it would be really helpful. Thanks. Ballistic Programs

Sadly there isn''t. You could write an wrapper which holds a fstream object and stores the filename. (an experimental idea when I have the time)
