FileTools[Text][ReadString] - read a string from a file

Calling Sequence

ReadString(file)

Parameters

file

-

file descriptor or filename

Description

• 

The ReadString(file) command reads a whitespace delimited string from file.

• 

If file is the name of a file that has not been opened, Maple attempts to open the file before reading the character.

• 

An error is raised if file is not a valid descriptor or if it is the name of a file that cannot be opened.

• 

If the end of the file has been reached, ReadString returns NULL. To determine if the end of file has been reached, use AtEndOfFile.
