I&#039;ve been trying to find an answer in every book that I have and also on the web but came up with nothing so I&#039;m posting my question here.<BR><BR>I&#039;m writing my code in C++ and my program reads in a textfile to the RAM like this: <BR>pointer = (char *) malloc(10000);<BR>read(handle,pointer,10000);<BR>< BR>Now I would like to read character by character from that pointer just as you would from a file by writing read(handle,buffer,1) and step 1 character forward for every read. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
