    Post Inventory system

    Hi there. This is my first hovering here in this site and I knew I could lean on the members here. I just wanna share this burden of mine (lol) and hope you could actually help me out. I needed to create a simple inventory system that could add product, add supplier, and do the main inventory process. Actually, the program should include file handling but I do not have a good background for it. I presumed I needed to post my unfinished codes here, so here it goes...

    yes, you should post your code and ask specific questions

    Re: Inventory system

    thanks guys.. sorry i've had not posted it right away. i had a difficult time on getting online because of my connection. anyways, there it is. actually, i've already copy-pasted some file handling codes somewhere, and fortunately it worked without a hassle. only i really do not understand it much especially this lines...
    if (x.is_open())
    {
    while(!x.eof())
    {

    cout<<endl;
    getline(x,line);
    cout<<line<<endl;

    }
    x.close();
    ...what does that !x.eof() do??? and x.is_open()???

    i know there is so much to work about here. i still needed to delete, edit, search, and sort the whole thing. i really appreciate your help guys...

    Re: Inventory system

    [code] some code[/code] - If you could edit your big post with code tags that would help readability a lot.

    Code:
    if (x.is_open())
    {
      while(!x.eof())
      {
    
        cout<<endl;
        getline(x,line);
        cout<<line<<endl;
      }
      x.close();
    }
    is_open() checks that the stream x is successfully opened - e.g. it is possible to try to open an fstream on a non-existant file, in which case it can't be opened.

    eof() checks for end of file, but I think this isn't the best method for reading the correct amount from a stream. Better is
    Code:
    while (x >> variable)
    {
    }
    
    // or
    while (getline(x, variable))
    {
    }

    Re: Inventory system

    thanks man.. okay so i did follow ur codes. the first doesn't seem to function well.
    Code:
    while (x >> variable)
    {
    }
    it omits or ignores the first character in every line in the .txt file so i've tried the 2nd one.
    Code:
    // or
    while (getline(x, variable))
    {
    }
    now, everything is displayed. and it is easier to understand. thanks to you. actually, i really would need to know and understand these codes because we have a defense-like event in the finals. and you helped a lot. now i needed to delete things from the txt file and i do not have any idea to begin with. can i again lend a hand for this?

    Re: Inventory system

    The first version does something different:
    Code:
    string words = "one two three four";
    string temp1, temp2;
    stringstream str(words);
    str >> temp1; // temp1 = "one"
    str >> temp2; // temp2 = "two"
    So choose which one depending on what suits your needs.

    Do you need to delete the whole contents of the file? Or just some parts of it?

    Re: Inventory system

    no, just parts of it. as you see in my delpro/delsup functions i already made it to delete a certain product or supplier but i know it would be different as it behaves in file handling.
    Code:
    cout<<"Enter Stock No.: ";
    cin>>code;
    int i;
    for(i=0;i<=num-1;i++)
    {
    if(pro[i].stockNo==code)
    {
    check=i;
    }
    }
    
    for(i=0;i<=num-1;i++)
    {
    if(i==check)
    {
    continue;
    }
    else
    {
    if(i>check)
    {
    temppro[i-1]=pro[i];
    }
    else
    {
    temppro[i]=pro[i];
    }
    }
    }
    num--;
    
    for(i=0;i<=num-1;i++)
    {
    pro[i]=temppro[i];
    }
    as for example. you would have to input the stock No/ctrl No of the item, and the whole array will be deleted.

    Re: Inventory system

    it is probably best to keep the software model (data in memory) seperate from the file model (data on disk) - dont try and modify both too often or make one reliant on the other keeping up to date with each operation/transaction.

    design and implement saving & loading routines.

    Decide when it is sensible to modify the model on file. When you want to make any changes to the data on disk, just call the save routine (you might want to consider backing up data).
