#include <string>
using namespace std;
int main()
string filename = "random.txt";   // Name of the file

 int sum =0;float avg = 0;
string line;   // To read each line from code
int count=0;    // Variable to keep count of each line
ifstream mFile (filename);  

while(getline(mFile, line))
  stringstream fun(line); //converting string to integer for addition
  int x=0;
  fun >> x;
  sum = sum + x;
mFile.close(); // file closing
avg = sum/count; // Avg calculation
cout<<"Number of numbers: "<<count<<endl;
cout<<"Sum of numbers: "<<sum<<endl;
cout<<"Average of numbers: "<<avg<<endl;

cout<<"Couldn't open the file\n";
return 0;

What's the question?

Your code works, all you need is a random.txt file added to your project with some content so it can be read (or you should open a different file).

If you wanted to read an input from foo.in and write an output to foo.out, then here is how you would implement it in C++:

#include <cstdio>

#include <iostream>

int main() {

    freopen("foo.in", "r", stdin);

    freopen("foo.out", "w", stdout);

    //after these two lines, you may now use "cin" and "cout" as you would regularly.
