Unless there's some switch in the D11 FileIO xtra to tell it you're dealing
with binary data, you could try the BuddyFile xtra from www.mods.com.au.
Thank you all for responding. I have been able to process the binary file using BytesXtra.
However, if we use this Xtra to read ANSI text files that have special characters (for example é, á etcetera) the correct ASCII values are read but Director is unable to interpret these characters. Thus, they are incorrectly displayed on application screens.
Does Director have a function that allows translating ANSI text into Unicode (which does display special characters correctly)?
Does anyone else have experience processing binary and Ansi coded text in Director 11?
