Thread: fread and newlines

    fread and newlines

    Using the 'seek ftell rewind' method reports newlines to be two bytes long and when I read the file in all the newlines are one byte long.

    So it's impossible to tell if there has been some kind of error since the reported size will always be different from the 'true' size.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: Also, this causes me to allocate to big a buffer... Which is a mild issue.

    You won't get the discrepancy if you open the file in binary mode rather than text mode.
