Can blitz input stuff into variables from text files?
Im looking for something like
var txt : string := "text.txt"
var input: int
open : input, txt, get

the blitz equivilant to this.
oh yea while I m on this thread, anyone know why this doesn't work? I was trying out the mouse functions, this is suppose to put the x coord of the mouse when clicking

Graphics 640,480

While Not KeyHit(1)
If MouseDown(1) Then
Print x1
End If

oh no. sorry it has taken so amazingly long to reply here. for whatever reason the thing didn't turn orange:?

anyways. as to your question:
Can Blitz input stuff into variables from text files?
Do you doubt blitz? of course it can Razz
however, I've never learned how to do file manipulation in Turing: haven't found a need to. So nor have I learned it in Blitz. But if you go to the Command Reference and scroll down (you should be in 2D categorized) until you see the File/Stream section. That should be everything you need.

As for your program: what exactly is your problem with it? I try to run it and i get "expecting: wend". doesn't seem to make much sense Thinking
however, after playing with it for a while, I realized you put the # before thr x1. it should be x1#, not #x1. Or you could just leave the # off.
once the # is fixed, it should work fine.
