/* C++ Programming Code to Write Content to File To write some content in a file using C++ programming, you have to enter the file name with extension to open that file using the function open(), then after opening the desired file, again ask to the user to enter some content (some line of text) to store in the file. And at last, close the file after use using the function close() as shown in the following program.

#include Directive in C++
#include is a way of including a standard or user-defined file in the program and is mostly written at the beginning of any C/C++ program. This directive is read by the preprocessor and orders it to insert the content of a user-defined or system header file into the following program. These files are mainly imported from an outside source into the current program. The process of importing such files that might be system-defined or user-defined is known as File Inclusion. This type of preprocessor directive tells the compiler to include a file in the source code program.
Syntax for #include Directive in C++
#include "user-defined_file"
Including using " ": When using the double quotes(" "), the preprocessor access the current directory in which the source "header_file" is located. This type is mainly used to access any header files of the user's program or user-defined files.
#include <header_file>
Including using <>: While importing file using angular brackets(<>), the the preprocessor uses a predetermined directory path to access the file. It is mainly used to access system header files located in the standard system directories. Header File or Standard files: This is a file which contains C/C++ function declarations and macro definitions to be shared between several source files. Functions like the printf(), scanf(), cout, cin and various other input-output or other standard functions are contained within different header files. So to utilise those functions, the users need to import a few header files which define the required functions. User-defined files: These files resembles the header files, except for the fact that they are written and defined by the user itself. This saves the user from writing a particular function multiple times. Once a user-defined file is written, it can be imported anywhere in the program using the #include preprocessor. • In #include directive, comments are not recognized. So in case of #include <a//b>, a//b is treated as filename. • In #include directive, backslash is considered as normal text not escape sequence. So in case of #include <a\nb>, a\nb is treated as filename. • You can use only comment after filename otherwise it will give error.

gets() Function in C++
Get string from stdin. Reads characters from the standard input (stdin) and stores them as a C string into str until a newline character or the end-of-file is reached. The newline character, if found, is not copied into str. A terminating null character is automatically appended after the characters copied to str. Notice that gets is quite different from fgets: not only gets uses stdin as source, but it does not include the ending newline character in the resulting string and does not allow to specify a maximum size for str (which can lead to buffer overflows).
Syntax for gets() Function in C++
#include <cstdio> char * gets ( char * str );
str
Pointer to a block of memory (array of char) where the string read is copied as a C string. On success, the function returns str. If the end-of-file is encountered while attempting to read a character, the eof indicator is set (feof). If this happens before any characters could be read, the pointer returned is a null pointer (and the contents of str remain unchanged). If a read error occurs, the error indicator (ferror) is set and a null pointer is also returned (but the contents pointed by str may have changed). The most recent revision of the C standard (2011) has definitively removed this function from its specification. The function is deprecated in C++ (as of 2011 standard, which follows C99+TC3).

exit() Function in C++
The exit function terminates the program normally. Automatic objects are not destroyed, but static objects are. Then, all functions registered with atexit are called in the opposite order of registration. The code is returned to the operating system. An exit code of 0 or EXIT_SUCCESS means successful completion. If code is EXIT_FAILURE, an indication of program failure is returned to the operating system. Other values of code are implementation-defined.
Syntax for exit() Function in C++
void exit (int status);
status
Status code. If this is 0 or EXIT_SUCCESS, it indicates success. If it is EXIT_FAILURE, it indicates failure. Calls all functions registered with the atexit() function, and destroys C++ objects with static storage duration, all in last-in-first-out (LIFO) order. C++ objects with static storage duration are destroyed in the reverse order of the completion of their constructor. (Automatic objects are not destroyed as a result of calling exit().) Functions registered with atexit() are called in the reverse order of their registration. A function registered with atexit(), before an object obj1 of static storage duration is initialized, will not be called until obj1's destruction has completed. A function registered with atexit(), after an object obj2 of static storage duration is initialized, will be called before obj2's destruction starts. Normal program termination performs the following (in the same order): • Objects associated with the current thread with thread storage duration are destroyed (C++11 only). • Objects with static storage duration are destroyed (C++) and functions registered with atexit are called. • All C streams (open with functions in <cstdio>) are closed (and flushed, if buffered), and all files created with tmpfile are removed. • Control is returned to the host environment. Note that objects with automatic storage are not destroyed by calling exit (C++). If status is zero or EXIT_SUCCESS, a successful termination status is returned to the host environment. If status is EXIT_FAILURE, an unsuccessful termination status is returned to the host environment. Otherwise, the status returned depends on the system and library implementation. Flushes all buffers, and closes all open files. All files opened with tmpfile() are deleted. Returns control to the host environment from the program. exit() returns no values.

If Else Statement in C++
In computer programming, we use the if statement to run a block code only when a certain condition is met. An if statement can be followed by an optional else statement, which executes when the boolean expression is false. There are three forms of if...else statements in C++: • if statement, • if...else statement, • if...else if...else statement,
Syntax for If Statement in C++
if (condition) { // body of if statement }
The if statement evaluates the condition inside the parentheses ( ). If the condition evaluates to true, the code inside the body of if is executed. If the condition evaluates to false, the code inside the body of if is skipped.
Syntax for If...Else Statement
if (condition) { // block of code if condition is true } else { // block of code if condition is false }
The if..else statement evaluates the condition inside the parenthesis. If the condition evaluates true, the code inside the body of if is executed, the code inside the body of else is skipped from execution. If the condition evaluates false, the code inside the body of else is executed, the code inside the body of if is skipped from execution. The if...else statement is used to execute a block of code among two alternatives. However, if we need to make a choice between more than two alternatives, we use the if...else if...else statement.
Syntax for If...Else...Else If Statement in C++
if (condition1) { // code block 1 } else if (condition2){ // code block 2 } else { // code block 3 }
• If condition1 evaluates to true, the code block 1 is executed. • If condition1 evaluates to false, then condition2 is evaluated. • If condition2 is true, the code block 2 is executed. • If condition2 is false, the code block 3 is executed. There can be more than one else if statement but only one if and else statements. In C/C++ if-else-if ladder helps user decide from among multiple options. The C/C++ if statements are executed from the top down. As soon as one of the conditions controlling the if is true, the statement associated with that if is executed, and the rest of the C else-if ladder is bypassed. If none of the conditions is true, then the final else statement will be executed.
Syntax for If Else If Ladder in C++
if (condition) statement 1; else if (condition) statement 2; . . else statement;
Working of the if-else-if ladder: 1. Control falls into the if block. 2. The flow jumps to Condition 1. 3. Condition is tested. If Condition yields true, goto Step 4. If Condition yields false, goto Step 5. 4. The present block is executed. Goto Step 7. 5. The flow jumps to Condition 2. If Condition yields true, goto step 4. If Condition yields false, goto Step 6. 6. The flow jumps to Condition 3. If Condition yields true, goto step 4. If Condition yields false, execute else block. Goto Step 7. 7. Exits the if-else-if ladder. • The if else ladder statement in C++ programming language is used to check set of conditions in sequence. • This is useful when we want to selectively executes one code block(out of many) based on certain conditions. • It allows us to check for multiple condition expressions and execute different code blocks for more than two conditions. • A condition expression is tested only when all previous if conditions in if-else ladder is false. • If any of the conditional expression evaluates to true, then it will execute the corresponding code block and exits whole if-else ladder.

/* If Else Statement in C++ Language */ #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main () { // local variable declaration: int a = 100; // check the boolean condition if( a < 20 ) { // if condition is true then print the following cout << "a is less than 20;" << endl; } else { // if condition is false then print the following cout << "a is not less than 20;" << endl; } cout << "value of a is : " << a << endl; return 0; }
strlen() Function in C++
Get string length. Returns the length of the C string str. C++ strlen() is an inbuilt function that is used to calculate the length of the string. It is a beneficial method to find the length of the string. The strlen() function is defined under the string.h header file. The strlen() takes a null-terminated byte string str as its argument and returns its length. The length does not include a null character. If there is no null character in the string, the behavior of the function is undefined.
Syntax for strlen() Function in C++
#include <cstring> size_t strlen ( const char * str );
str
a string passed to this function, whose length needs to be found. Here str is the string variable of whose we have to find the length. It takes one parameter which is a pointer that points to the null-terminated byte string. The string is terminated by a null character. If a null character does not terminate it, then the behavior is undefined. It returns an integer giving the length of the passed string. Function returns the length of string. While calculating the total length of a String, the character at the first index is counted as 1 and not 0, i.e. one-based index . The function strlen returns the total number of characters actually present in the char[] and not the total number of character it can hold.

/* return the length of the C string str by strlen() function code example */ #include <cstring> #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { char str1[] = "This a string"; char str2[] = "This is another string"; // find lengths of str1 and str2 // size_t return value converted to int int len1 = strlen(str1); int len2 = strlen(str2); cout << "Length of str1 = " << len1 << endl; cout << "Length of str2 = " << len2 << endl; if (len1 > len2) cout << "str1 is longer than str2"; else if (len1 < len2) cout << "str2 is longer than str1"; else cout << "str1 and str2 are of equal length"; return 0; }
Fstream Library open() Function in C++
Open file. Opens the file identified by argument filename, associating it with the stream object, so that input/output operations are performed on its content. Argument mode specifies the opening mode. If the stream is already associated with a file (i.e., it is already open), calling this function fails. The file association of a stream is kept by its internal stream buffer: Internally, the function calls rdbuf()->open(filename,mode|ios_base::out) The function clears the stream's state flags on success (setting them to goodbit). In case of failure, failbit is set.
Syntax for Fstream open() Function in C++
void open (const char* filename, ios_base::openmode mode = ios_base::in | ios_base::out); void open (const string& filename, ios_base::openmode mode = ios_base::in | ios_base::out);
filename
String with the name of the file to open. Specifics about its format and validity depend on the library implementation and running environment.
mode
Flags describing the requested input/output mode for the file. This is an object of the bitmask member type openmode that consists of a combination of the following member constants: • in input File open for reading: the internal stream buffer supports input operations. • out output File open for writing: the internal stream buffer supports output operations. • binary binary Operations are performed in binary mode rather than text. • ate at end The output position starts at the end of the file. • app append All output operations happen at the end of the file, appending to its existing contents. • trunc truncate Any contents that existed in the file before it is open are discarded. These flags can be combined with the bitwise OR operator (|). If the mode has both trunc and app set, the opening operation fails. It also fails if trunc is set but out is not. This function does not return any value. If the function fails to open a file, the failbit state flag is set for the stream (which may throw ios_base::failure if that state flag was registered using member exceptions).
Data races
Modifies the fstream object. Concurrent access to the same stream object introduce data races.
Exception safety
Basic guarantee: if an exception is thrown, the stream is in a valid state. It throws an exception of member type failure if the function fails (setting the failbit state flag) and member exceptions was set to throw for that state.

/* Fstream library open() function opens the file identified by argument filename, associating it with the stream object, so that input/output operations are performed on its content. */ #include <iostream> #include <fstream> using namespace std; int main() { fstream new_file; new_file.open("new_file_write.txt",ios::out); if(!new_file) { cout<<"File creation failed"; } else { cout<<"New file created"; new_file<<"Learning File handling"; //Writing to file new_file.close(); } return 0; }
main() Function in C++
A program shall contain a global function named main, which is the designated start of the program in hosted environment. main() function is the entry point of any C++ program. It is the point at which execution of program is started. When a C++ program is executed, the execution control goes directly to the main() function. Every C++ program have a main() function.
Syntax for main() Function in C++
void main() { ............ ............ }
void
void is a keyword in C++ language, void means nothing, whenever we use void as a function return type then that function nothing return. here main() function no return any value.
main
main is a name of function which is predefined function in C++ library. In place of void we can also use int return type of main() function, at that time main() return integer type value. 1) It cannot be used anywhere in the program a) in particular, it cannot be called recursively b) its address cannot be taken 2) It cannot be predefined and cannot be overloaded: effectively, the name main in the global namespace is reserved for functions (although it can be used to name classes, namespaces, enumerations, and any entity in a non-global namespace, except that a function called "main" cannot be declared with C language linkage in any namespace). 3) It cannot be defined as deleted or (since C++11) declared with C language linkage, constexpr (since C++11), consteval (since C++20), inline, or static. 4) The body of the main function does not need to contain the return statement: if control reaches the end of main without encountering a return statement, the effect is that of executing return 0;. 5) Execution of the return (or the implicit return upon reaching the end of main) is equivalent to first leaving the function normally (which destroys the objects with automatic storage duration) and then calling std::exit with the same argument as the argument of the return. (std::exit then destroys static objects and terminates the program). 6) (since C++14) The return type of the main function cannot be deduced (auto main() {... is not allowed). 7) (since C++20) The main function cannot be a coroutine.

/* simple code example by main() function in C++ */ #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int day = 4; switch (day) { case 1: cout << "Monday"; break; case 2: cout << "Tuesday"; break; case 3: cout << "Wednesday"; break; case 4: cout << "Thursday"; break; case 5: cout << "Friday"; break; case 6: cout << "Saturday"; break; case 7: cout << "Sunday"; break; } return 0; }
While Loop Statement in C++
In while loop, condition is evaluated first and if it returns true then the statements inside while loop execute, this happens repeatedly until the condition returns false. When condition returns false, the control comes out of loop and jumps to the next statement in the program after while loop. The important point to note when using while loop is that we need to use increment or decrement statement inside while loop so that the loop variable gets changed on each iteration, and at some point condition returns false. This way we can end the execution of while loop otherwise the loop would execute indefinitely. A while loop that never stops is said to be the infinite while loop, when we give the condition in such a way so that it never returns false, then the loops becomes infinite and repeats itself indefinitely.
Syntax for While Loop Statement in C++
while (condition) { // body of the loop }
• A while loop evaluates the condition • If the condition evaluates to true, the code inside the while loop is executed. • The condition is evaluated again. • This process continues until the condition is false. • When the condition evaluates to false, the loop terminates. Do not forget to increase the variable used in the condition, otherwise the loop will never end!

/* While Loop Statement in C++ language */ // program to find the sum of positive numbers // if the user enters a negative number, the loop ends // the negative number entered is not added to the sum #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int number; int sum = 0; // take input from the user cout << "Enter a number: "; cin >> number; while (number >= 0) { // add all positive numbers sum += number; // take input again if the number is positive cout << "Enter a number: "; cin >> number; } // display the sum cout << "\nThe sum is " << sum << endl; return 0; }
C++ Files and Streams
In C++ programming we are using the iostream standard library, it provides cin and cout methods for reading from input and writing to output respectively. To read and write from a file we are using the standard C++ library called fstream. Let us see the data types define in fstream library is: • ofstream: This data type represents the output file stream and is used to create files and to write information to files. • ifstream: This data type represents the input file stream and is used to read information from files. • fstream: This data type represents the file stream generally, and has the capabilities of both ofstream and ifstream which means it can create files, write information to files, and read information from files. To perform file processing in C++, header files <iostream> and <fstream> must be included in your C++ source file.
Opening a File
A file must be opened before you can read from it or write to it. Either ofstream or fstream object may be used to open a file for writing. And ifstream object is used to open a file for reading purpose only. File streams in C++ are basically the libraries that are used in the due course of programming. The programmers generally use the iostream standard library in the C++ programming as it provides the cin and cout methods that are used for reading from the input and writing to the output respectively. In order to read and write from a file, the programmers are generally using the standard C++ library that is known as the fstream. Following is the standard syntax for open() function, which is a member of fstream, ifstream, and ofstream objects.
void open(const char *filename, ios::openmode mode);
Here, the first argument specifies the name and location of the file to be opened and the second argument of the open() member function defines the mode in which the file should be opened. ios::app Append mode. All output to that file to be appended to the end. ios::ate Open a file for output and move the read/write control to the end of the file. ios::in Open a file for reading. ios::out Open a file for writing. ios::trunc If the file already exists, its contents will be truncated before opening the file.
Closing a File
When a C++ program terminates it automatically flushes all the streams, release all the allocated memory and close all the opened files. But it is always a good practice that a programmer should close all the opened files before program termination. Following is the standard syntax for close() function, which is a member of fstream, ifstream, and ofstream objects.
void close();
Writing to a File
While doing C++ programming, you write information to a file from your program using the stream insertion operator (<<) just as you use that operator to output information to the screen. The only difference is that you use an ofstream or fstream object instead of the cout object.
Reading from a File
You read information from a file into your program using the stream extraction operator (>>) just as you use that operator to input information from the keyboard. The only difference is that you use an ifstream or fstream object instead of the cin object. 'ifstream' data type of 'fstream' library is used to read the files of C++. But before reading, there are several tasks which are performed sequentially like opening the file, reading and closing it. Different data types are used for the specific purpose. We can simply read the information from the file using the operator ( >> ) with the name of the file. We need to use the fstream or ifstream object in C++ in order to read the file. Reading of the file line by line can be done by simply using the while loop along with the function of ifstream 'getline()'.

clrscr() Function in C++
It is a predefined function in "conio.h" (console input output header file) used to clear the console screen. It is a predefined function, by using this function we can clear the data from console (Monitor). Using of clrscr() is always optional but it should be place after variable or function declaration only. It is often used at the beginning of the program (mostly after variable declaration but not necessarily) so that the console is clear for our output.

getch() Function in C++
The getch() is a predefined non-standard function that is defined in conio.h header file. It is mostly used by the Dev C/C++, MS- DOS's compilers like Turbo C to hold the screen until the user passes a single value to exit from the console screen. It can also be used to read a single byte character or string from the keyboard and then print. It does not hold any parameters. It has no buffer area to store the input character in a program.
Syntax for getch() Function in C++
#include <conio.h> int getch(void);
The getch() function does not accept any parameter from the user. It returns the ASCII value of the key pressed by the user as an input. We use a getch() function in a C/ C++ program to hold the output screen for some time until the user passes a key from the keyboard to exit the console screen. Using getch() function, we can hide the input character provided by the users in the ATM PIN, password, etc. • getch() method pauses the Output Console until a key is pressed. • It does not use any buffer to store the input character. • The entered character is immediately returned without waiting for the enter key. • The entered character does not show up on the console. • The getch() method can be used to accept hidden inputs like password, ATM pin numbers, etc.

Standard Output Stream (cout) in C++
The cout is a predefined object of ostream class. It is connected with the standard output device, which is usually a display screen. The cout is used in conjunction with stream insertion operator (<<) to display the output on a console. On most program environments, the standard output by default is the screen, and the C++ stream object defined to access it is cout.
Syntax for cout in C++
cout << var_name; //or cout << "Some String";
The syntax of the cout object in C++: cout << var_name; Or cout << "Some String";
<<
is the insertion operator
var_name
is usually a variable, but can also be an array element or elements of containers like vectors, lists, maps, etc. The "c" in cout refers to "character" and "out" means "output".
