Description[edit | edit source]
This statement moves the file mark, in the currently-open file indicated by
fileID, to the end-of-file position (without overwriting any of the existing data in the file). This causes subsequent file output statements such as
write file# to append data to the end of the file.
Example[edit | edit source]
In the following, note that we open the output file using the "R" method. This is because opening with the "O" method causes the "end-of-file" mark to move to the beginning of the file, effectively erasing any existing data.
a$ = "TESTING..." open "R", 1, fileName$,, wdRefNum% 'Open an existing file append #1 'Set file pointer to end write #1, a$;25 'Add data to end of file close #1 'Close file
