Owning Class: support
Requires: MathScript RT Module
a = fgets(fid)
a = fgets(fid, n)
Reads a specified number of characters or a line from a file. fgets(fid) reads a line from the file you specify in fid. fgets(fid, n) reads n characters from the file you specify in fid. If the file mark reaches an end-of-line character, LabVIEW stops reading from the file. To read a line or a specified number of characters from a byte stream file, you must use this function.
|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 number of characters to read from the file you specify in fid.|
|a||Returns the string LabVIEW reads from the file you specify in fid.|
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|
Make sure the file Test.m exists in the MathScript search path.fid = fopen('Test.m');
