[example]Reading files one byte at a time

Post by SimpleSi » Jan 26th, '18, 09:25

Just putting this here for anyone wanting to use the new filestream blocks to read large files

There is no end-of-file boolean available but if the byte read has a nil value then we can assume that we've read the whole file

Thanks for the example!

Yes, if "read byte" returns nil, it means you've gotten to the end of the file.
