Reads lines of text from a file into a string array without retaining newlines.
// Specify file name with full path fname = getGAUSSHome() $+ "examples/housing.csv"; // Open file handle for reading fh = fopen(fname, "r"); // Read the first 3 lines of the file s = fgetsat(fh, 3);
After the above code, s will equal:
"taxes","beds","baths","new","price","size" 3104,4,2,0,279.9,2048 1173,2,1,0,146.5,912
Note that s will NOT have a newline character at the end of each line.
fgetsat() procedure operates identically to
fgetsa(), except that newlines are not
retained as text is read into sa.
In general, you don’t want to use
fgetsat() on files opened in binary mode
fgetsat() procedure drops the newlines, but it does NOT drop the
carriage returns that precede them on some platforms. Printing out such
a string array can produce unexpected results.
