Question Microsoft Visual C++, Reading from File, Reading an XFile not heirarchy

i am trying to figure out how to read an xfile into vectors and structures. What i am trying to do is take an xfile, and extract the vertices of the polygons in the xfile. I am using this for bounding box purposes, but my character will actually be inside the xfile, which is why i need the vertices. Every xfile gives the number of vertices, number of polygons, number of normals, but when i try to read the file normally, i get errors. The project that this will be used by requires Direct X9, and i seem to lose functionality of the string class when direct x is implemented. I can find tutorials on how to read the xfile heirarchy for animation purposes and bounding boxes on the outside, but nothing for inside. I really need any help that can be offered. Xfile is attached below as a pdf
#include <d3d9.h>
#include <d3dx9.h>
#include <ifstream>
#include <string>
#include <vector>
using namespace std;

struct point()
int x;//x coordinate of each vertice int y;//y coordinate of each vertice int z;//z coordinate of each vertice
}; stuct polygon() {
vector<point> vertices;//polygon can have 4 or 5 vertices, hence the vector
}; struct room() {
string name;//will be derived from the xfile vector<polygons> sides;//most of the rooms have about 180 polygons to them
}; void main() {
ifstream xfile("Alpa aon 1.x")//i have tried both the .x file and .txt file with no success string readline; if(!xfile.isopen()) {
cerr<<"File will not open";
else {
getline(xfile,readline);//i was using this for testing purposes, but for some reason, my executable get stuck in an endless loop or cout<<readline<<endl;//this line outputs hexadecimal characters instead of the line it read
} }
if anyone has any ideas about what i need to change or an easier way to do this please let me know. i appreciate all the help i can get

Hi, welcome to LQ.

Please edit your post to erase your email address as no email address should appear in a post. Furthermore you will receive a lot of spam.

Instead you can ask people to send you private messages, or use e.g. pastebin to post the content of your file and then link to it here.

Additionally you can post your xfile here just rename it to use alphanumeric characters only and make it ending in .txt
