|Note that streams can be copied by simply out << in.rdbuf();|
thanks man, this is a great advice, i'll make sure to use it in the future.
|With the current standard (C++11) it appears that if only eof() is set the seek will reset the eof flag and preform the seek. |
i think i'm somewhat outdated, i'm writing my project in the 98 standard.
anyway, after i read your comments i started a research and found something:
i mis-spotted the true error in my project, i can now see the true error:
actually my program processed a file (1.txt
mentioned above) and saved the process result in a temporary file then called Copy()
to move the contents from Temp
, the put-pointer in Temp
is not in the beginning of the file, maybe this made the get operations to malfunction, that's unlikely the problem however.
another cause is, the processing of 1.txt
sat the eofbit
, so the seek operation
failed to continue, that's the true cause in my opinion.
to the Copy()
function and that solved the problem.
my deep thanks to all of you, your contributions were a great help.
