Hello I have file "sign.car" that is being chared by another program.

that's how it works:

I lauch the c# code. And i excute the other program also.

They both depend on this file. And it contains 1 or 0.

If sign = 1. The the program will use it.

Else i  will use it.

That's how i wrote it. BUT it is TIME CONSUMING!!!!!!!!!!!

i have to wait 2 SECONDS it is really slowing my work.
List<Classification> data = new List<Classification>();
        while (signe == 1)
        {

            if (stopW.ElapsedMilliseconds > 2000)
            {
                StreamReader reader1 = new StreamReader("signe.car");
                line = reader1.ReadLine();
                signe = Int32.Parse(line);
                reader1.Close();
            }
            else
            {
                stopW.Start();
            }
            if (signe == 0)
            {
                string path = "resultat.car";
                string[] lines = File.ReadAllLines(path);
                string[,] grid = new string[obs.GetLength(0), 2];

                for (int i = 0; i < lines.Length; i++)
                {
                    string[] fields = lines[i].Split('\t');
                    data.Add(new Classification(Int32.Parse(fields[0]), Int32.Parse(fields[1])));

                }//End For

            }//END IF

        }//End while

I'm not sure what you are asking if you don't want to wait 2 seconds then take that out. If you are writing the file, closing the handle, flushing the handle, etc... and then opening it with a new instance/process/exe/ect... and that 2 seconds is needed for all of that to happen you are stuck. Why not just save the file name with a 1 or 0 in the name. Then you just read the name with one process and you open it with the other. Reading a filename into a string is fast. No buffers and such...

actually i tried Try and catch didn't work.
And 2 seconds does count if i have a 100*1000 Loop.
i don't know if there is a way to do it without even affecting the other program. Cos the other one is also throwing an exception.

i think that i am stuck cos the other one don't have an exception. and the only solution to know if it used by another process is to try and open it.
