Description andrew 2003-09-01 17:47:00 UTC
The Get statement expects the string length to precede a string. Put does not
add this, you must do this manually. If this is present, then there is no
problem. If, however, there is an incorrect string length, it will read in what
it can and then place garbage into the string variable causing OOo to sometimes

I created a short binary file that contained the ASCII for "ABCDABCD" and told
it to read the string. It uses "AB" as the length. Probably not a problem
because it can not read past the end of the file. No error checking is done.

I also can not use 
Get #n,,i%

This leaves the file pointer at the end of the file and reads garbage.

definitely not API methods, looks like StarBASIC runtime to me
