StreamReader reader = new StreamReader("file.txt");
 

string line;

while ((line = reader.ReadLine()) != null)

{

    string[] lineParts = line.Split(',');

    //  Do what you want with lineParts array.

}

I don't see anything wrong with the above, but I can suggest an alternative. Also, I'm assuming your file is line-delimited, and within the lines, it is comma delimited. If the comma-delimited values belong to the line, you can use this, instead:


private System.String[][] OrganizeFile(System.String myFilePath)

{

	System.String[] temp = System.IO.File.ReadAllLines(myFilePath);

	System.String[][] output = new System.String[temp.Length][];
 

	for(System.Int32 i = 0; i < temp.Length; i++)

	{

		output[i] = temp[i].Split(',');

	}
 

	// The first "index" indicates the line, while the second indicates each value.

	return output;

}

Open in new window
