• Binary Files

    writing ansi characters and strings to a binary file.
    I just can't seem to get it to work.

    I have an array of data that I want to write sequentially to a file that I can later load using Graphic.js. Is there a trick to using the binary file methods? base_64 conversion?

    There are many many tricks! The best thing would be to add a save method to the Graphic class and email it to me so I can include it in CVS. :-)

    You can have a look at how Graphic_load() does it (one byte at a time using binary IO) for hints on how to do the save.

    Also, TheDraw will save in this format (it's called "RAW" or "C" or something like that)

    sent... It's a mediocre solution, at best.. but it's what worked for me.. graphic_load() was useless, as far as helping get it done. I don't think my function handles attributes.
