Carriage return and line feed, when to use them..

grahamojgrahamoj Posts: 366Member
Hiya I am writing records of lenght 100 in a file. I was just wondering when am I meant to use carriage returns and line feeds?? What is the advantages of putting them into ur files??

Is this a line feed = '
' and is this the carriage return = '
'??

So it would be:
char *line = "hello
";

Also what is the difference between stream and ostream??

Thanks.

    [blue]they're not necessary in files with fixed-length records where you do not want to read the records back as strings. otherwise you can do this:[/blue]
    [code]
    char *line = "Hello";

    // C method
    fprintf(fp,"%s
    ",line);

    or

    // c++ method
    stream << line << endl;

    [/code]

    ' and is this the carriage return = '
    '??

    : char *line = "hello
    ";

    [blue]as far as I know there is no such class as stream. [/blue]
    [code]

    #include <iostream>
    #include
    #include
    #include

    BUT NO SUCH THING AS
    #include
    [/code]
