public container read()

Run On


Return Value

Type: container
A container that holds the next full record from the Io object.


The definition of the next full record is controlled by the inFieldDelimiter, inRecordDelimiter, and inRecordLength method properties. The record is returned as a container. Each entry in the container equals one field in the record.

Each of the specialized Io classes has default settings for inFieldDelimiter, inRecordDelimiter, and inRecordLength enabling input and output of the most common formats. You might have to adjust these to support the wanted format.
