Field definitions specify what data type each field is as well as other information that should be obvious by looking at the type. For sequential files, this value is the number of characters buffered. Your 3rd block code, or mine? Provide details and share your research!
You can omit this entry, in which case the next byte following the last Get or Put statement is read. The Binary file mode allows reading and writing of simple data type values, like Byte or LongIntusing binary read or write operations, like Get.
The syntax, as it applies to binary files is: Get [ ]filenumber, [byte position], varname The filenumber is any valid filenumber as defined above. The LOF function takes the filenumber of the file to be processed as its argument, and returns the length of the file in bytes.
Using your examples I have now rewritten the. Close 1 This code example opens the file in Binary mode for reading; other processes can't read the file.
That happens to be the case here, so we could have done that. The last things stored in the file are the actual records.
