It is really embarrassing to ask these kind of questions.

You could use the C library fread()[^] function, or the C++ iostream[^] class.

+5, iostream can also be used if someone isnt allergic to its syntax.

It usually takes me an hour or two to figure it out.
If you want to keep it simple stupid:
#include <stdio.h>

void process_line(const char* line)
    // you line processing here

void test()
    FILE* f = fopen("myfile.txt", "r");
    if (f)
        // replace the line below to "for (;;)" if you want to process all lines
        for (int i=0; i<3; ++i)
            const int MAX_LINE_LENGTH = 0x100;
            char line[MAX_LINE_LENGTH];
            if (!fgets(line, sizeof(line), f))
            int len = strlen(line);
            if (len>0 && line[len-1]=='\n')
                line[len-1] = 0;

It was in response to your comment about "How to inject a DLL into a .exe".
