Currently i am writing a program that opens a file as binary and it needs to input each byte and adjust it to 3 characters long (e.g. if the byte is < 10 then add 2 zeros to the front of the number). Currently i use the get statement to do this...the problem i have run into is that it takes so increadibly long to load the file. Is there a quicker (much quicker preferably) way to do this? Let me know...thanks! Oh ya...sorry for the small ammount of points...i don't have many because i'm new.
