Thanks,

only read the file into a CString:
use CFile::Read(), CFile::Seek()
for example:

char      szBuffer[256];
UINT      nActual = 0;
CFile myFile;
CString myString;

myFile.Seek( 0, CFile::begin );
nActual = myFile.Read( szBuffer, sizeof( szBuffer ) );
myString=szBuffer;

hope it will help u!

Well actually I can do it with a buffer, I want to do it without having to repeat the read process several times with my buffer. I guess it is not possible?

then you may set the buffer large enough, such as:

char szBuffer[myFile.Length]

freshmeat,

char szBuffer[myFile.Length]

Have you actually tried this code?  I do not believe this code will work.  You cannot create an array dynamically like you're trying to.  How else would you do this?

I actually have the same problem, but also do not wish to repeated read the file and add it to the string.

Cheers,
Cameron
