//arrays initialized to zero
//to easily track changes
//user input into cstring "file"
cout<<"Please enter the file name: ";
//gather input from file and store in array
//display the array elements
So far I can only input and display "1234" and 9.75.
Okay, so I've made a rookie mistake. I've gone back and simplified some stuff and found that I left off the stream manipulator in my output loop in line 32. Because I found this little error I have confirmed my program does read in my data from the file into the right arrays from what I can tell.
Anyway, I haven't figured out how to make the for loop in line 27 to quit when it comes to the end of the data in the file.
