Hi, i've created a file format called '.OCQ'. I used it former in 16-bit BP7 - Programs. Now i want to load these files in a delphi 3 program. i know how to use BlockRead, records and Pointers in BP but not how to do that in Delphi.

thanx, Omsec ;)

hmm try that

var f: file of byte;
    p: array [0..30000] of byte;
    l:integer;

begin
AssignFile(f,'c:\autoexec.bat');
Reset(f);
BlockRead(f,p,30000,l);
CloseFile(f);

//this is your writeln :-)
Canvas.TextOut(10,10,IntToStr(p[0]));
end;

if you read records via BlockRead from a file the right var declaration is

var myrecord : record packed
         a:byte;
         b:byte;
     end;
