FileOpen

2 posts in this topic

In the listing for FileOpen, in regards to using the raw mode of opening a file, it says:

When using the mode=4 (Raw Read) the filename is defined as "\\.\A:" for reading sector on a floppy disk the count must be a multiple of sector size(512).

So, I guess that only applies to floppies. Can someone please tell me, in a nutshell, what it means to be in "Raw Read" mode as it applies to AutoIt?

It means it doesn't treat it like a text file, it treats it like a binary file (meaning it uses binary I/O operations on it).
