I am using

AssignFile(F,'filename')
Rewrite(F)
Writeln(F)
Close(F)

to save an opened TextFile. I found that there is one or two more bytes (#13#10) added in the end of text file each time. Can some one tell me why and how to ignore that bytes ?

WriteLn will write with a line feed and carriage return (equivalent to you terminating each line by pressing the ENTER button of your keyboard).

if you do not want the extra characters, use Write instead of WriteLn.
