File input problem
I'm having a very trivial problem while reading a file.
I'm using C++ and hence classes to read a file. Even though I'm
checking for eof, I'm getting an extra character in the file's last line.
Here are the files I'm working with -
<C++ source code>
int i = 0;
inFile.open( "test.txt", ios::in );
while( inFile.good() )
s[i++] = inFile.get();
for( int j = 0; j < i; ++j )
cout << s[j];
cout << endl;
</C++ source code>
<test.txt contains *only* five characters>
But, the output I'm getting is
linux# <-- some extra character
Even in a multiline file all the lines are read correctly, but only the last
line has this extra character.
How do I correct this?
