FILE I/O in an IDE

  1. Mar 4, 2012 #1
    Can it be done? I do not really understand what the point of it is. I thought that using FILE I/O for example in C was only useful at the terminal where you can create files and read from them. What if I try FILE I/O programming in Pelles C IDE will it even create files in my directory??

    Your question really doesn't make sense. Your program can do file I/O however it is created - as a console application that you run from the command line, or as a Windows (or other graphical OS) application.

    The integrated development environment (IDE) is just a way to combine the operations of editing your files, and then compiling, linking, and debugging the application.
