No way to read files in easylanguage?

Postby AntiMatter » 04 Mar 2011

Googling around, it seems the only way to read from a file in easy language is to use a custom made external dll.

Wtf, this seems crazy. I can play videos but I can't read a few numbers from a file....?!

Definitely a great idea.

Doesn't the EL Collection DLL do this fairly easily? I've used it to read in statistical tables for patterns that are then monitored in real-time. It was pretty simple to set up. The fact that it's a custom DLL shouldn't matter - it's in the public domain.
