I want the user to give me the full path where the file exists and not just the file name. How do I open the file this way?
Is it something like this:
ifstream file; file.open("C:/Demo.txt", ios::in);
This doesn't seem to work.
Normally one uses the backslash character as the path separator in Windows. So:
ifstream file; file.open("C:\\Demo.txt", ios::in);
Keep in mind that when written in C++ source code, you must use the double backslash because the backslash character itself means something special inside double quoted strings. So the above refers to the file
