File Reading and Writing

  1. Jul 6, 2008 #1
    Hi! Thanks for helping me. I need to write a program (in C++) that reads the file Employee.dat as input and then outputs to 4 different files which are Managers.dat, Marketing.dat, Developers.dat, and Testers.dat. Each of the output files contains the name of the employees of its category.

    The fle Employee.dat contains following data:

    Sue Leon 4
    Robert Wise 3
    Sam Woo 1
    Nathan White 3
    Suzan Head 2
    Henry Williams 4
    Christine Mint 1
    Kim Leeds 4
    Elton Sue 3
    Ken Latch 2

    I tried to write the program but I don't know what to put in "SWITCH" loop. Here is what i have so far.

    #include <iostrean>
    #include <fstream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <string>
    using namespace std;

    int main()
    ifstream in_stream;
    ofstream out_stream;

    if (in_stream.fail())
    cout << "Input file failed to open.\n";

    out_stream.open(("Managers.dat", ios::app), ("Marketing.dat", ios::app), ("Developers.dat", ios::app), ("Testers.dat", ios::app);
    if (out_stream.fail())
    cout << "Output file failed to open.\n";

    string first_name, last_name;
    enum department { Managers = 1, Marketing = 2, Developers = 3, Testers = 4 };

    im_stream >> first_name >> last_name >> department;
    while (!in_stream.eof())
    switch (department)
    number '1';
    out_stream << "
