In this tutorial, we will learn about Flowgorithm File symbols. Flowgorithm 3.0 supports reading and writing of text files in flowcharts.
A file is a collection of data that resides on the hard disk or on other persistent storage devices.
The common file type is the text file with a *.txt file extension. Text files are human-readable.
On Windows operating system, we can create text files using the File Explorer and other text editor software. Common text editor software examples are Notepad, Notepad++, TextPad, etc.
To support this feature, four new flowchart symbols are introduced in this version.The new symbols are as follows:
|Open||An Open statement allows reading or writing operations on a file in the flowchart.|
|Read||A Read statement reads a value from the open file and stores it into the flowchart variable.|
|Write||A Write statement evaluates an expression and writes the result to the open file.|
|Close||A Close statement closes an open file.|
