Scanning Files

Does anyone know where I can get an example of how to scan a file for a specified string? I know how to incorporate the DOS command "find," but I'd like to be able to get my program to react to the specified string. . .

Hmm. . . Hope that makes sense.


  • You have to load the entire file contents into a string variable then use the INSTR$ function. Refer to the qbasic help files for syntax and stuff.
