text files for I/O

{I'm just started learning Delphi this week }
I need a program to write real numbers and string text to a textfile and read them out to a 2 dimensional array and preform some calculations and output onto the form.

If you could help me out with answers or sample code that'd be great.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need create a variable like this

var VariableName:Text;
     buffer:string;

Then you can try open the file:

   AssignFile(VariableName,"PhysicalName of file (on disk)"); { Map variable to a real file}
   Rewrite(LogFile); {Clear and open the file}

If you want write
 
   Write(VariableName,"text that you want write")

or

  Writeln(VariableName,"text that you want write")

If you want read from file

  Readln(VariableName,buffer) {Read one line from the file and set to next line}

When you finish
 
  CloseFile(VariableName).

If you have doubts, write again. GoodLuck!!!!!!

Yo roadie,

That VariableName can be everything.

eg. You want to write strings (chars) to a file :
           VariableName : File of char
                                  or  File of String
                                  or  Text  (Short for File of String)
     You want to write numbers ? :
           VariableName : File of integer
                                  File of real;
     You want to write records ? :
          Score = RECORD
            Name : string[50];
            Value : Real;
          End;
           
                  --> VariableName : Score

......... and keep going on, on, on, on ...............

Regards, Zif.

Nice to hear about newcommers.

Succes!

Why don't people keep it simple to beginners, I wouldn't understand a bit of it (No offence), here's some sample code:

Procedure WriteToFile(FileName,Text: String);
var
  F: File of text; //Pascal Style
  //F: Textfile; //Delphi style
Begin
  Try
    AssignFile(F,Filname);
    FileMode:= fmOpenReadWrite; //See Delphi help File-mode constants.
    Reset(F);
    WriteLn(F,Text);
    //Write(F,Text);
    //Write(F,Text,' Hello World ');
  Finally
    CloseFile(F);
  End;
End;

Don't mention it. If you have found it usefull, that's satisfaction enough to me. The others somehow did come up with different and correct answers, but it happens too often that experts don't seem to come up with simple answers, and that's a hint to everyone. Keep it simple!
