Hi.

I need a program that opens a acsii file.
Check the first line at chr nr 80 if there is a carrige return, if not put inn one. If there is a CR at that posistion of the first line, just close the file.
If no then put inn a CR, go to the next line and do the same.
so on, until the end of file.

When i open the file i do not know how big the file is...

the way I would do it would   be like this:

while (not eof(file))  do
begin
   x=x+1  
   read(file, chr)
   if x=80  and chr<>char(13)  then  "put char(13) in file"
   if x=81  and chr<> char(13) then  x=1
   if x=81 and chr=char(13) then  break
end

This is kinda psuedo code, but for it should get you down the road.   Hope this helps

Kim,  
The syntax is pretty much on.  though the "" is what you want to do, not actuall code.  Take this and place it in a program and it should work.  If you know c/c++ then you should have no prob picking up the syntax for pascal.  the two are very similar.

If you have any probs or questions then e mail me.  kellyj@r2d2.bpginc.com
