Hello and I hope you are doing well. Module 2 assignments are very interesting where you start to see the power of the programming and that would be a great experience for you. Please try to experiment it them by yourself as much as you can and that would be a way to understand data bases and even Google.
There are two ways that you can do it and I prefer the first at this time.
- By redirection “<” in the cmd mode c:\my documents \testdatafile.exe< testdatafile.in
Please refer to the end of chapter 3 on topic of Dos or Unix commands.
By using the file stream inside the program and please look at the Question Q3e at the end of chapter 3. In addition, I have dedicated chapter 9- file handling to this cause.
The easiest way to link your executed program to a data file is by going to cmd (command mode) and simply use a redirection (I got so excited when I personally learned this and It was a best gift for me).
Here is help with using a data file in your program
- Type the program the same way you are doing interactively and save it as testdatafile.cpp. Test your program for correctness by typing the data interactively
- Make a data file like making a program but choose =>new=>file=> resource and name it as testdatafile.in
