cout or fopen

1 New Member
I have been stuck with a very critical question now, and have been unable to find the answer to it. If anyone could help me with this it would be great.

Which of the following two options is better for an application to write its outputs:

1. Use cout and then redirect the output to any required file.
2. Open the required file using file stream functions and write to that file through the application.

The criteria for decision for me is performance.

I would use an ofstream to do the job, but I'm not sure how that would compare to using cout and redirecting. I've never tried your first option.

It's close to twenty years since I used the C language and at that time I was doing only floating point computational work, nothing with strings or reading files. I tried to use fopen in the following manner. a file name is entered by keyboard , fgets is used to read the name. printf is used to confirm that the name was correctly read. Then infile=fopen("filename","r") is used to open the file which very definitly exists. It returns '0' as...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
