Returns the current read/write position in the given file.
int fileGetPos ( file theFile )
OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!
- theFile: the file handle you wish to get the position of.
Returns the file position if successful, or false if an error occured (e.g. an invalid handle was passed).
This example opens the file test.txt and outputs its contents and current read position to the console.
local hFile = fileOpen("test.txt", true) -- attempt to open the file (read only) if hFile then -- check if it was successfully opened local buffer while not fileIsEOF(hFile) do -- as long as we're not at the end of the file... buffer = fileRead(hFile, 500) -- ... read the next 500 bytes... outputConsole(buffer.."Current Position: "..fileGetPos(hFile)) -- ... and output them to the console and outputs the current read position end fileClose(hFile) -- close the file once we're done with it else outputConsole("Unable to open test.txt") end
