I just fall on TextOutputStream.Delimiter (sort of discovering it) and I found that nice.
(No, I never noticed or I forgot TextOutputStream.Delimiter).
After a simple search, it seems that TextOutputStream.Delimiter exists in REALbasic for many years, if not from the beginnings (REALbasic 1.0)
TextInputStream does not have this Property.
Yes, as someone I thank again says: "you can read the whole file with
ReplaceLineEndings, save it and load it normally as you actually do. But this is a work-around who have to be done by 200,000 Xojo users while adding a Delimiter property to TextInputStream have to be done once.
Is this too hard or impossible to do ?
What is your feeling on that ?
PS: I falled once more on that yesterday, but I was lucky to remember from where the text data comes before I put it into a TextEdit window: Safari text from an old eml file. So, Ive made in Apples TextEdit a <fÎË-cr> replace all by chr(13) and all goes well (until sometimes in the future when I will forget what happens !)
PPS: AppleScript have this kind of thing (and much more) to load data from text files. The command ask something like: rad from file XyZ until . Isnt this powerful ?
