 ERROR: memory cannot be "read"

I am getting the following error when running using VC++ 6.0/

The instruction at <address> referenced memory at <address>.
The memory could not be "read".

This occurs after the entire program has executed successfully and the
ifstream destructor is called.  I have search the Microsoft support pages
and found the same error but under different circumstances that do not seem
to apply to my app.  I am reading in info from a text file, storing the info
in a structure, doing a bunch of calculations using the info from the
structure as parameters into my methods, then trying to cout the information
to a DOS window.  I was working fine until yeterday when I added a few more
calculations and then began getting this error.

The call stack in the de{*filter*}s shows it aborting on the last line of the
main() when it tried to destruct the ifstream.  When I tried destructing the
ifstream myself using


Where input is the name of the ifstream object it gave me an error.  Could
there be something wrong with my ifstream class definition.  I am so stuck
on this!  Oh, one more piece of info, I compiled the exact code on a Linux
machine and got no errors and everything worked great.

Any ideas?

hi Kristen.

sounds like a memory overwrite corrupts your ifstream. you can test against
such things with stuff like afxcheckmemory() and related functions.
