trying to create aan array from a text file

1 New Member

I am trying to build an array out of an input text file as shown below.

SAF 10 1 10
CLB 20 18 10 11

SAF 20 1 10 11
SAF 30 1 10
SAF 40 1 11
SAF 10 0 10
SAF 11 0 11

SAF 31 1 10
SAF 21 1 11
SAF 10 0 10
SAF 11 0 11

SAF 10 1 10
CLB 20 18 10
SAF 21 1 11
SAF 11 0 11

now here the first 3 fields in each line constitute the value field (like value1).Now suppose under heading one there is some value for value1 then it needs to go in the first column. Same way if heading4 has a value for value1 it needs to go under corresponding column4. So the output array should generated would be something like this

[CLB 20 18] [10 11] [ NULL] [ NULL] [ 10]
[SAF 10 0] [ NULL ] [ 10 ] [10 ] [NULL ]
[SAF 10 1 ] [10 ] [NULL ] [ NULL ] [10 ]
[SAF 11 0 ] [NULL ] [11 ] [11] [ 11 ]
[SAF 20 1 ] [NULL ] [10 11 ] [NULL ] [NULL ]
[SAF 21 1 ] [NULL ] [NULL ] [11 ] [11 ]
[SAF 30 1 ] [NULL ] [10 ] [ NULL ] [ NULL ]
[ SAF 31 1 ] [NULL ] [ NULL ] [10 ] [NULL ]
[ SAF 40 1 ] [NULL ] [11 ] [ NULL] [ NULL ]

The square brackets are just to show the whole thing as one string

Now if I read the complete line using getline then I am not able to ignore the lines with word pattern. If I use cin then I get each word individually. I hope I am not making it too complicated. My code so far is:

#include<iostre am>
#include<string >
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

int main(){
ifstream input("detectio n_report.txt", ios::in);
int columns = 0;

cerr<<"File could not be opend\n";

string value;
while(getline(i nput,value)){

string check = value.substr(0, 1);
if (check == "p")
columns = columns + 1;

//Here I want to read the lines without the "pattern" words.
//Secondly I just want to read only the first three groups to put in an array.
//which is quite difficult using a substr as some will need 8 characters and some will need 9.
cout << value << "\n";

cout << "Columns: " << columns <<"\n";

return 0;

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
