NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     read - Read from a	file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     read ?-nonewline? fileId
     read fileId numBytes

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     In	the first form,	all of the remaining bytes are read from the file
     given by fileId; they are returned	as the result of the command.  If the
     -nonewline	switch is specified then the last character of the file	is
     discarded if it is	a newline.  In the second form,	the extra argument
     specifies how many	bytes to read; exactly this many bytes will be read
     and returned, unless there	are fewer than numBytes	bytes left in the
     file; in this case, all the remaining bytes are returned.	FileId must be
     stdin or the return value from a previous call to open; it	must refer to
     a file that was opened for	reading.  Any existing end-of-file or error   |
     condition on the file is cleared at the beginning of the read command.
