12 1 input and output files review
12.1 Input and Output Files, Review
  • text file
    • a named collection of characters saved in secondary storage
  • input (output) stream
    • continuous stream of character codes representing textual input (or output) data
  • (FILE *) stdin
    • system file pointer for keyboard’s input stream
  • (FILE *) stdout, stderr
    • system file pointers for screen’s output stream
12 2 binary files
12.2 Binary Files
  • Formatted Text files
    • contain variable length records
    • must be accessed sequentially, processing all records from the start of file to access a particular record
  • Binary Files (random access file)
    • a file containing binary numbers that are the computer’s internal representation of each file component
    • contain fixed length records
    • can be accessed directly, directly accessing the record that is required
  • Binary files are appropriate for online transaction processing systems,
    • e.g. airline reservation, order processing, banking systems,
  • sizeof
    • operator that finds the number of bytes used for storage of a data type
the data hierarchy
The Data Hierarchy
  • Bit - smallest data item
    • Value of 0 or 1
  • Byte – 8 bits
    • Used to store a character
      • Decimal digits, letters, and special symbols
  • Field - group of characters conveying meaning
    • Example: your name
  • Record– group of related fields
    • Represented astruct or a class
    • Example: In a payroll system, a record for a particular employee that contained his/her identification number, name, address, etc.
  • File– group of related records
    • Example: payroll file
  • Database – group of related files
in a random access file
In a Random Access File …
  • Data
    • Data unformatted (stored as "raw bytes") in random access files
      • All data of the same type (ints, for example) use the same memory
      • All records of the same type have a fixed length
      • Data not human readable
random access
Random Access
  • Access individual records without searching through other records
  • Instant access to records in a file
  • Data can be inserted without destroying other data
  • Data previously stored can be updated or deleted without overwriting.
  • Implemented using fixed length records
    • Sequential files do not have fixed length records
random access a file fread
Random Access a File -- fread ()
  • fread --Transfer bytes from a file to a location in memory
  • Function fread requires four arguments
    • ret = fread(buffer, size, num, myptr);
      • the number of objects read
    • buffer: Address of first memory cell to fill
    • size: Size of one value
    • num: Maximum number of elements to copy from the file into memory
    • myptr: File pointer to a binary file opened in mode “rb” using function fopen

How to distinguish error and EOF?

random access a file fwrite
Random Access a File – fwrite()
  • fwrite - Transfer bytes from a location in memory to a file
  • fwrite( &number, sizeof( int ), 1, myPtr );
    • &number - Location to transfer bytes from
    • sizeof( int ) - Number of bytes to transfer
    • 1 - For arrays, number of elements to transfer
      • In this case, "one element" of an array is being transferred
    • myPtr - File to transfer to or from
random access a file fwrite ii
Random Access a File – fwrite() (II)
  • Writing structs

fwrite( &myObject, sizeof (struct myStruct), 1, myPtr );

    • sizeof - Returns size in bytes of object in parentheses
  • To write several array elements
    • Pointer to array as first argument
    • Number of elements to write as third argument
access data randomly in a random access file









Access Data Randomly in a Random Access File
  • fseek
    • Sets file position pointer to a specific position
    • fseek( myPtr, offset, symbolic_constant);
      • myPtr- pointer to file
      • offset - file position pointer (0 is first location)
      • symbolic_constant - specifies where in file we are reading from
      • SEEK_SET - seek starts at beginning of file
      • SEEK_CUR - seek starts at current location in file
      • SEEK_END - seek starts at end of file
  • ftell
    • Return the current position in a stream
    • ftell( myptr)
      • myPtr- pointer to file
12 3 searching a database
  • database
    • a vast electronic file of information that can be quickly searched using subject headings or keywords
  • 本節請自修, 寫作業時可參考
12 4 common programming errors 1 2
  • Remember to declare a file pointer variable (type FILE *) for each file you want to process
  • fscanf, fprintf, getc and putc must be used for text I/O only
  • fread andfwrite are applied exclusively to binary files
  • fscanf, fprintfand getc take the file pointer as their first argument
  • putc, fread and fwrite take the file pointer as their last argument
12 4 common programming errors 2 2
  • Opening a file for output by calling fopen with a second argument of “w” or “wb” typically results in a loss of any existing file whose name matches the first argument
  • Binary files cannot be created, viewed, or modified using an editor or word processor program
  • Depending on OS, a read cannot follow a write, a write cannot follow a read, except using a feek(SEEK_CUR, 0) between them
