Read Data from a Text File using C++

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

This is a C++ program to read data from a text file.

Input

tpoint.txt is having initial content as
“Tutorials point.”

Output

Tutorials point.

Algorithm

Begin
   Create an object newfile against the class fstream.
   Call open() method to open a file “tpoint.txt” to perform write operation using object newfile.
   If file is open then
      Input a string “Tutorials point" in the tpoint.txt file.
      Close the file object newfile using close() method.
   Call open() method to open a file “tpoint.txt” to perform read operation using object newfile.
   If file is open then
      Declare a string “tp”.
      Read all data of file object newfile using getline() method and put it into the string tp.
      Print the data of string tp.
   Close the file object newfile using close() method.
End.

Example

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;
int main(){
   fstream newfile;
   newfile.open("tpoint.txt",ios::out);  // open a file to perform write operation using file object
   if(newfile.is_open())     //checking whether the file is open
   {
      newfile<<"Tutorials point \n"; //inserting text
      newfile.close(); //close the file object
   }
   newfile.open("tpoint.txt",ios::in); //open a file to perform read operation using file object
   if (newfile.is_open()){   //checking whether the file is open
      string tp;
      while(getline(newfile, tp)){  //read data from file object and put it into string.
         cout << tp << "\n";   //print the data of the string
      }
      newfile.close();   //close the file object.
   }
}

Output

Tutorials point
