 ReadNextInteger - Maple Help

FileTools[Text]

 read the next integer from a file Calling Sequence ReadNextInteger(file) Parameters

 file - file descriptor or filename Description

 • The ReadNextInteger(file) command attempts to read an integer from file. The ReadNextInteger function skips non-numeric characters until a valid integer is found.  The integer is read from file and returned.  If no characters form a valid integer, then NULL is returned.  In this case, the file is read to the end of the file.
 • If file is the name of a file that has not been opened, Maple attempts to open the file before attempting to read the integer.
 • An error is raised if file is not a valid descriptor or if it is the name of a file that cannot be opened. Examples
