    File reading problems

    I have to read several (in excess of 10000) arrays of 432 bytes of logged data from a file and process the data.

    I have used

    while (fread(&Input.WriteArry,1,432,Ffp)==1)

    to read the file. This only reads the first 263 arrays, fseek also shows this to be the end of the file. I have confirmed with a hex editor that all the arrays of data are present.

    Please advise.

    Best regards,

    VR6_Nut

    So what format the file is in?

    Make a quick search on the form on how to read huge file. You might come up with some dozens of thread with the same topic.

    Have you opened the file as a binary file? Or did you just use the default ASCII one?

    If that's not the problem, I can't imagine anything but a problem somewhere else in the code.
