Pulling data from a text

I'm new to C++ and I'm having issues pulling data from a .txt file. What I have is a .txt with multiple entries per line; it looks like.

firstName midName lastName department origSalary percentIncrease

And I'm supposed to output with a header the data to:

Last First Mid. Initial Depart. Original Salary Amount of Increase New Salary

lastName, firstName midInitial department origSalary increaseAmount newSalary

I'm so lost to how to do this that any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your code will look something like this:


ifstream infile(filename);

while(infile >> fname >> lname ... etc )//text file reading works just like cin
{
do something with the variables you read;
}
