Hi ,
I am trying to open a file in binary to write. But I am getting the message
"could not open the file".
Code:
fstream outCredit( "credit.dat", ios::in | ios::out | ios::binary );
if ( !outCredit )
{
cerr << "File could not be opened." << endl;
exit( 1 );
}
i am running on gcc version 4.2.4 (Ubuntu 4.2.4-1ubuntu3).

What is the reason for this pblm.

Regards
Manish

Please use code tags when posting code. Saves code being translated into stupid smilies.

Does the file exist?
