Is it possible to convert the input you get from using the getline(inputfile, string) to an int?
Say i have a file "abcd.txt", with the following content:
How can i convert the 6 and 3, which are strings because of the getline() function, to an integer?
Thank you very much,

There are many ways to convert a string to an int. Some may be better than others for various situations:
to name just a few.

Thanks for your quick reply, i get an error whilst compiling though.
Heres my code:
using namespace std;
one = atoi(line);
two = atoi(line);
The error i get is the following: error C2664: 'atoi' : cannot convert parameter 1 from 'std::string' to 'const char *'

Yes, atoi() is a C function, so it doesn't know about std::string. The error is telling you exactly what's wrong. You'll need to use std::string's compatibility method, c_str().

Are there other chars on each line besides what you have shown ?
if not, whu not read directly into an int variable ?
