> Hello, would we need to transfer the file contents to another file by writing or would we be storing them in an array? I read the lecture notes covering writing into files but is this necessary here?
There's certainly no need to use another file; unless the amount of data exceeds what can 'easily' fit in a computer's RAM, or if we wish to retain data for a long period, the usual approach is to read data from a file (once) and store it in a data-structure.

You appear to have some fundamental misunderstandings about the project. I strongly suggest that you (and your project partner?) attend one of our laboratory sessions and speak with a lab demonstrator.
