While I would usually advocate using the C++ standard library for many tasks, file I/O tends to be a sore point where it IMHO just doesn't work well. WDL has the WDL_FileRead and WDL_FileWrite classes (fileread.h and filewrite.h) that might work better. Of course, as usual, no obvious example code exists on how to use them.

If you'd like, I can try writing some code that uses those WDL classes? It would be helpful to know what kind of data exactly you need to write and read, though...
