Fast File Reading

There's a million ways to skin a cat or read a file but for my money this is the best

void FileToString(std::string filename, std::string& string)
    std::ifstream file;, std::ios::binary | std::ios::ate);
    if (!file.is_open())
        throw std::exception("Unable to read from file");
    long lBufferSize = file.tellg();
    file.seekg(0, std::ios::beg);
    string.resize(lBufferSize +1);[0], lBufferSize);
