NAME

bget - get a random file record

SYNOPSIS

bget(recnum)
double recnum;

DESCRIPTION

Bget reads record number recnum from the current file (see initio(io)).  Records of a random file are of the same length as the buffer and are numbered sequentially starting with one.  If recnum is zero, then the read is sequential, in other words, the next record is read.  The pointers within the buffer are reset. 

This function resets the current file. 

This function implements the GET statement.

DIAGNOSTICS

Error 54 (Bad file mode) is generated if the file is not open for random I/O.
