@BREAD[handle,offset,filehandle,fileoffset,length] : Read from a file to a binary buffer.

 

handle - a binary handle from @BALLOC

 

offset - the byte offset in the buffer (decimal or hex)

 

filehandle - a file handle opened for reading (from @FILEOPEN)

 

fileoffset - the read offset (from the current file position) (decimal or hex)

 

length - number of bytes to read (decimal or hex)

 

@BREAD returns the number of bytes actually read.

 

Example:

 

set fhandle=%@fileopen[filename,r]

set bhandle=%@balloc[128]

set value=%@bread[%bhandle,0,%fhandle,0,32]
