Pointers and Strings Help

P: n/a
Need help with this problem.

I am searching a file for certain information using pointers.

If i find the information I'm looking for, then i output the pointer to
the screen using a while loop.

For example:

while(*tmp_ptr != '\'')
{
cout << *tmp_ptr;
tmp_ptr++;
}

The output could look something like this:

'The big dog ran away ' (excluding the quote
marks)

I want to somehow create a string that will put this output into it so
that I can get rid of the extra white space at the end.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Treshauna

use std::stringstream to send output to a string,
and for trimming white spaces from string follow this link
