How do i edit a specific part of a text file in free pascal?
Just as what the title says, how do i do this? I know that the append command adds text to the end of the file but i don't want to do that nor rewrite the entire text file. I just want to edit a specific part of a text file. Here's my scenario: I have different lines of data in a text file, what i'm trying to do is to edit a specific line into a user input. What i already have coded down is finding the line to be edited, and then a user input with the data to change on the line and everything works all fine without problems, however i am completely stumped on what i do to change the data from the text file to user input. Edit: After frustratingly playing around for a while here's what i've come up to, but it doesn't work, error 106. If s = 'N' Then Begin Writeln(); Writeln('Please enter the correct data'); Append(sf); Readln(sData); Writeln(sf, sData); Close(sf); End; Also to note, i do not have the file close before this block of code but i do have an EOF to stop the previous code from having unneeded looping before breaking, i close the file at the end of this code and again in another block. Either way the file closes but i only get the error with those block.
Thanks for the comments, using the TStringList procedure my program works the way i want it to. What i did was load the file with TStringList.LoadFile, and because the data i'm searching through it has a fixed pattern so i was able to search through and indexing through the file with a fixed index (i.e. Index = Index + 3), removed the indexed line in the data file and inserted the new data.
