# Problem with reading large text files

## Recommended Posts

Hi, i have written a wrapper class for text files. It works fine for many text files i have tested for now. But just for example, i used it to read "DDraw.h" and copy it to a new file. DDraw.h is approximately 137 KB in size, and i have compared the size of bytes in the Explorer with that returned by GetSize(), they were equal. But reading this file and copying the content to a new file, the last 50-60 lines are not in the destination file! The memory buffer is allocated without any error. Look at this source code, please!

{
if (!Open("r")) return false;

size_t fSize = GetSize();

if (fSize == 0) return 0;

char* buf = new char [fSize+1];

ZeroMemory(buf, fSize+1);

if (!buf) return 0;

fread(buf, fSize, 1, _file);

if (close) Close();

return buf;
}

Can someone give me a hint what could be wrong here? thanks Gammastrahler [edited by - Gammastrahler on March 19, 2003 3:03:24 AM]
