Romfile.Getdata Method

Function:

Reads data from a currently opened resource (ROM) file.

Syntax:

romfile.getdata(maxinplen as byte) as string

Returns:

String containing a part of the ROM file's data

Romfile Object

Description

maxinplen

Maximum number of characters to read from the file.

Details

The actual return string length is limited by three factors, whichever is smaller: the capacity of the receiving string, the amount of remaining data in the file (romfile.size +1-romfile.pointer ), and the maxinplen argument.

Invoking this method moves the current pointer position forward by the actual number of bytes read.
