Read/Write Class Objects from/to File in C++
Given a file “Input.txt” in which every line has values same as instance variables of a class.
Read the values into the class’s object and do necessary operations.
The data transfer is usually done using '>>' and <<' operators. But if you have a class with 4 data members and want to write all 4 data members from its object directly to a file or vice-versa, we can do that using following syntax : To write object's data members in a file : // Here file_obj is an object of ofstream file_obj.write((char *) & class_obj, sizeof(class_obj)); To read file's data members into an object : // Here file_obj is an object of ifstream file_obj.read((char *) & class_obj, sizeof(class_obj));
Input : Input.txt : Michael 19 1806 Kemp 24 2114 Terry 21 2400 Operation : Print the name of the highest rated programmer. Output : Terry
