What is the equivalent of
         while(fgets(Buffer,80,fp));
in UTF_file operations?

How do I read until EOF?

Hi,


....
....
LOOP
BEGIN
  GET_LINE(file_handle,buffer);
  ...
EXCEPTION
  WHEN NO_DATA_FOUND THEN
    EXIT;
END;
END LOOP;
.......
.......


Where
GET_LINE(file_handle IN FILE_TYPE, buffer OUT VARCHAR2);

       Read a line of text from the file.

   Parameter:

       file_handle - File handle returned from the FOPEN function that you want to get a line of text from buffer - Data buffer to store the next line of text in the file.

   Exceptions raised:

       NO_DATA_FOUND   - reached the end of file
       VALUE_ERROR   - line too long to store in buffer
       INVALID_FILEHANDLE - not a valid file handle
       INVALID_OPERATION  - file is not open for reading
       READ_ERROR   - OS error occurred during read


Hope this helps you.
