Hi,

I need to write to a text file in a loop. Every time I go into the loop I will loop through a text file line by line and every line I finds in this text file I need to write that line into another text file and following that line I need to add another line from some other processing result. Then the program will resume reading another line from that first text file and add it to the second file again and so forth until we reached the end of first file.

Can somebody tell me how can achieve this in c# please.

It should something like this:

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace Sample
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            StreamReader inFile = null;
            StreamWriter outFile = null;

            try
            {
                inFile = new StreamReader(@"C:\Temp\YourInputFile.txt");
                outFile = new StreamWriter(@"C:\Temp\YourOutputFile.txt");

                for (var line = inFile.ReadLine(); line != null; line = inFile.ReadLine())
                {
                    outFile.WriteLine(line);

                    // Your Process
                    outFile.WriteLine(" your process line goes here ");
                }
            }
            finally
            {
                if (inFile != null) inFile.Close();
                if (outFile != null) outFile.Close();
            }
        }
    }
}
