I'm trying to catch "end of file" by using CFileException.
I have code in a try/catch block and when EOF occurs the catch part doesn't work.  My program goes on forever in what appears to be an endless loop.  Any working examples or help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks, Kelvin

Sorry, no exception is thrown when EOF is reached (as this isn't necessarily an error). To detect this, check the return value of 'CFile::Read()'. If it is less than the number of bytes requested, you're at the end...
begin quote-->
CFile::Read
virtual UINT Read( void* lpBuf, UINT nCount );
throw( CFileException );

Return Value

The number of bytes transferred to the buffer. Note that for all CFile classes, the return value may be less than nCount if the end of file was reached.

<-- end quote

Feel free to ask if you need an example...
