What is the Mac EOF char??

We're trying to open a file (Mac format) take its content and store it to database. What happens is that I can't do that unless I get read of the last charachter in the file. Then it becomes available to read from it. I was wondering if this has something to do with the EOF char of Mac?

What do you mean with MAC-format. There is no special mac-format. How did you access the MAC-File. Where is it stored? In general there is no special EOF char for the Macintosh but you have to take care that many files on the MAC have a resource and a data part. What kind of file is it?

What is the location of those parts? At the beginning and the end of the file usually? As we could manage to get the file open as we remove some of its charachters at the beginning and at the end!

In general on the beginning. How did you open the file. Which language did you use. What kind of file is it?

FYI

Last I knew all MAC files have a 128 character header file. Perhaps that is what you need to either look at or NOT look at.

I don't know about any EOF.

Good Luck!
