Confusion with infile.getline(...)

Trying to input a file

The first line I am trying to input is: Principles of Biochemistry
Trying to put "Principles of Biochemistry" into a char array book.title[]
with a max of MAXBOOKS

Why wont it work when I use...
infile.getline(book.title[], MAXBOOKS);

I dont know what is the compilation error that gave to you, but i think u sould put book.title (without the brackets) as the first argument of getline.

make sure your initialize your struct!

Book mybooks;

and then you can use mybooks.title[i];
