See more: VC8.0 MFC
I created a open and save dialog box for a binary file in mfc8.0(visual studio 2005),requires to provide file pointers to access the same. After opening a file, required to get a copy of that (should allocate a memory for the file approx 20kb )for editing and then updated(Save). Is thier any alternate way of allocating memory in MFC other than using malloc? Please Help me out with the code.....
Please give some inputs on File pointers , i'm new to software field.

The main part of your implementation is not clear. You need to explain more on what you need to do.

Solution 1

you are misunderstanded it. "File pointers" means not to point to allocated files in memory. Instand that maybe pointers to CFile-objects.

Please show EVERYTIME in your progreamming career the code you want to discuss.

The way you allocate memory even within MFC projects is independent of MFC (in another words, the framework has nothing to do with memory allocation). So your question doesn't make that much sense. What's wrong with using malloc/free or new/delete?

Maybe you need to clarify your question, and post some applicable code to help us understand the issue you are facing.
