    Question Files: Waiting for a file to become writeable.

    Win32, MSVC6.

    I dont know if this is the proper forum, but is there a function or a way to wait on a file to become writeable ?

    ( Other than a loop )

    Thanks

    i don't think so. a loop shouldn't be too hard to implement, though. besides, a standard loop couldn't account for the case where the file never becomes writeable.

    Acctually I've seen code somewhere that check files for changes. Can't remember if it checked if the file is readable or not. Keep on looking... The answer is out there... or was it truth... hmm...
