I wonder how you uses a case set when you open a textfile wiht assign
I want to read from a file from the disk and print it on the screen, the text after the case set is going to be printed on the screen

. here is a example of my problem:
Assign(f,r);
      Reset(f);
if not Eof(f) then begin
readln(f,s);
writeln(S);
end;
while not Eof(f) do begin
read(f);
end;
Close(f);


case q of

'A'..'a':writeln ('First vocal in the abc ');        {a}
'E'..'e':writeln ('  Second vocal in the abc ');          {e}

Case statements only work on ordinal values.  Therefore, you need to convert your character variable q to ord function.  For example:  

case ord(q) of
  65, 97: writeln('First vocal in the abc');
  69, 101: writeln('Second vocal in the abc');
end;

Note:  A = 65 and a = 97.
