opening a non.txt file

Recommended Posts


I have searched and was unable to find anything on this. I have a file that is able to open in notepad but is not a .txt file it has a different extension name. Is there a way to make fileopen and fileread work with a non .txt file??

Thanks for any help.

in the noobish spirt i move my file i was trying to open to the script directory and used @scriptdir and the file name and it worked...

So i double checked the directory path and noticed there was a _ missing :) i guess thats what you get for having files located everywhere. Anyways thanks for making me look deeper into the problem.
