Strage problems with fread and int=13 or 26.

Strage problems with fread and int=13 or 26.

Strage problems with fread and int=13 or 26.

When I try to read an integer from a binary file and the integer is either 13 or 26 the programm doesn't read it correctly, otherwise there is no problem. I've checked and edited the file with a hex editor and it is alright. I've tried standard C and similar problems occur. I'm desperate. HELP!

This is a simple version of a function that shows what I mean.

void __fastcall TForm1::Button1Click(TObject *Sender)
FILE *in, *out;
int c, rein, raus, dummy;

rein=13; //26;
c=fwrite(&rein, sizeof(int), 1, in);
fclose (in);

c=fread(&raus, sizeof(int), 1, out);
fclose (out);

RE: Strage problems with fread and int=13 or 26.

I think the problem's because u did not open the file in binary mode while reading from it...(try "rb" instead of "r")...


Please do correct me if I am wrong.

U may replace fwrite and fread methods with fprintf and fscanf methods.

Happy programming!))
