Reads binary data from a file.
|fid||Specifies the identifier for the file you want to read. Use the fopen function to open a file and assign it an identifier. fid is an integer.|
|n||Specifies the amount of data to read from the file specified by fid. LabVIEW discards all but the first two elements of n. If n is inf, LabVIEW reads the file until it reads all the data or an error occurs. n is a 32-bit signed integer or a 1D matrix of those values.|
|type||Specifies the data type to read from the file specified by fid. If you specify s, you can add a positive integer of the form 'm*' before type. LabVIEW then skips s bytes after each m bytes it reads successfully. You also can add '=>' and a data type after type to specify the data type that LabVIEW returns. type is a string that accepts the following values.
|s||Specifies the number of bytes to skip after each m bytes as you specify in type. s is a positive integer.|
|byte||Specifies the byte order, or endian form, to use when reading data. byte is a string that accepts the following values.
|a||Returns the data that LabVIEW read from the file specified by fid. a is a vector or matrix of 64-bit, double-precision, floating-point numbers.|
|b||Returns the amount of data that LabVIEW read successfully from the file specified by fid. b is a positive integer.|
The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.
|Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine||Yes|
|Supported on RT targets||Yes|
|Suitable for bounded execution times on RT||Not characterized|
