Trying to learn C#

What would be the equivalent of a vb6 Module in C# and how would the code below appear in C#.

strFileName = Dir("\\CAKPOSSERVER\C\POSiTrack\FTP\POS*.TXT")
What would be comparable to Open "\\CAKPOSSERVER\C\POSiTrack\FTP\" & strFileName for input as #1 in vb6
Line Input #1, textLineIn

I have several text files that I must iterate through and parse the text from each one using I suppose the substring function.

Thanks in advance!!

There is no equivalent of a module in C#, everything is a class, but you can use static methods which allow you to call a class method without having to create an instance of the class.

To read a file line by line you would use something like:
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader("path to your file");
string line = string.Empty;

while ((line = reader.ReadLine()) != null)
{
     // parse the line
}

reader.Close();

Open in new window

For the concatenation part, use System.IO.Path.Combine().

e.g.
using Sytem.IO;

string strFilename = "someFile.txt";

strFilename = Path.Combine("\\CAKPOSSERVER\C\POSiTrack\FTP\", strFilename);

Open in new window
