    I want to make a program that will save files in C++. I want to save the files 1000 bytes at a time. This the code I have so far:
    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    int main()
    {
    	ofstream out;
    	ifstream in;
    	int X = 0;
    	char buffer;
    	char szTotal[1000];
    	in.open("C:\\Folder\\Program2.exe", ios::in | ios::binary);
    	out.open("C:\\Program.exe", ios::out | ios::trunc | ios::binary);
    
    	while(!in.eof())
    	{
    		if(X == 1000)
    		{
    			X = 0;
    			out << szTotal;
    		}
    		in.get(buffer);
    		szTotal[X] = buffer;
    		X++;
    	}
    	szTotal[X] = '\0';
    	out << szTotal;
    	cout << "Done" << endl;
    	out.close();
    	in.close();
    	return 1;
    }
    
    When I do this, the whole file isn't saved. I don't want to use filebufs to save/store the file. Any suggestions?

    Your code looks ok to me. What part of the file is not being saved? Is the target always a certain amount too small?
