Check out example codes for "fstream read write mode". It will help you in understanding the concepts better.

Code Example 1

stream file;
file.open(fileName,ios::in | ios::out);

Code Example 2

/ fstream::open / fstream::close
#include <fstream>      // std::fstream

int main () {

  std::fstream fs;
  fs.open ("test.txt", std::fstream::in | std::fstream::out | std::fstream::app);

  fs << " more lorem ipsum";

  fs.close();

  return 0;
}

Code Example 3

#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

ifstream file_variable; //ifstream is for input from plain text files
file_variable.open("input.txt"); //open input.txt

file_variable.close(); //close the file stream
/*
Manually closing a stream is only necessary
if you want to re-use the same stream variable for a different
file, or want to switch from input to output on the same file.
*/
_____________________________________________________
//You can also use cin if you have tables like so:
while (cin >> name >> value)// you can also use the file stream instead of this
{
 cout << name << value << endl;
}
_____________________________________________________
//ifstream file_variable; //ifstream is for input from plain text files
ofstream out_file;
out_file.open("output.txt");

out_file << "Write this scentence in the file" << endl;

Code Example 4

// basic file operations
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

int main () {
  ofstream myfile;
  myfile.open ("example.txt");
  myfile << "Writing this to a file.\n";
  myfile.close();
  return 0;
}
