: : Is it possible using the TextFile type to push a character back?

: Positioning an open file "backwards" is done with Seek(F). However, Seek can not be used for text files, so we'll open the file as a "file of bytes".

: var
: F: File of byte;
: [... see previous message...]

Thanks Guido. I thought I would have to do it this way was just not sure... This is a great help.

Thanks ^__^
