C++ Create File

In C++, you can create a file using either the ofstream or fstream class, and specify the name of the file.

Using the object created ofstream use the insertion operator (<<) to write the content of the file.

After writing the file content we will need to use the function close().

C++ Example to write a file

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>

using namespace std;

int main() {
  // Create and open a text file called File_Name.txt it can be any name you want
  ofstream MyNewFile("File_Name.txt");

  // Write to the file content
  MyNewFile<< "This is my first File!!";

  // Close the file
