Readfile returns nothing

Post by Squirrel » Tue May 12, 2020 5:20 pm

I am trying to read in a JSON output file from CURL. It's 45k Readfile simply returns a blank line in the variable watch list. The variable does not get created. I have tried changing the directory of the file, renaming the file etc. It cannot open it. I had this happen before but I can't recall the solution. Thanks

Very long lines may look blank in the watchlist. But the data is there. If you were to output it you should see it:

Do something like this and see if you see the text:

ReadFile>file,theData
MessageModal>theData
