Reading Integers from a file and dividing them

Reading Integers from a file and dividing them

Hi i am only new to assebly,
Could someone help me, i need to read 10 integers from a text file and get a total and divide them. I can open the file and read in a string, i cannot read in numbers seperatly for calculation/division. can you please help.

RE: Reading Integers from a file and dividing them

Read them in as strings.  Then, convert them to integers.  You're going to have to write your own atoi() routine here, though.  Here is one algorithm for an atoi() routine in pseudo-code:

get character
check if non-digit
if non-digit, jump exitloop
and character,0fh
jmp loop

It's your responsibility, of course, to write this into assembly code.
