#1684 closed Bug (Fixed)

FileRead: negative "count" value in binary mode causes "Error allocating memory"

Reported by: ChiDragon Owned by: Jpm
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: FileRead binary Error allocating memory Cc:


Au3Check does not throw any error. The memory allocation error simply pops up when the script is executed.

The Help file gives no indication of what acceptable values of "count" may be, or how to force reading the whole file when "count" is specified. Negative values in text-mode do in fact cause the entire file to be read.

Sufficient to reproduce:

$Handle = FileOpen (@ScriptFullPath, 16)
$WholeFile = FileRead ($Handle, -1)
FileClose ($Handle)

As mentioned, no problems if "0" is used instead of "16" to read in text-mode. The whole file is simply read just the same as if "count" was never specified.

$Handle = FileOpen (@ScriptFullPath, 0)
$WholeFile = FileRead ($Handle, -1)
FileClose ($Handle)
MsgBox (0, "", $WholeFile)
