byte by byte from file

byte by byte from file

Could someone tell me how I would read a file byte by byte?
The file would be like "wgfggert$%#%23r4s" and I want to read it byte by byte so instead of getting the whole string on each line put into a variable I want each byte of it to be put into different variables.
Like i would read from it the first time and get "w" then read it again and get "g" then "f" etc...

So does ne1 know how? thx   

RE: byte by byte from file


Try this

OPEN "test.txt" FOR BINARY AS #1
FOR x = 1 TO 10
a$ = INPUT$(1, #1) 'first 1 is the number of bytes

Hope this helps.
