What is the name of this function?

Good afternoon,

 

I came across a post describing how to read a file line by line with a single function, but there were no attached VIs and I could not find this function anywhere in labview

 

 

Source: http://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/How-to-read-from-a-file-line-by-line/td-p/479838

 

Can someone please tell me what the name of the function in the center is?

 Thank you

There is no need for this function; the Read from Text File function provides the same functionality. Right-click it to change from reading characters to reading lines.

That function is how we did it before LabVIEW 8.  NI did a massive upgrade to the File IO functions with the release of LabVIEW 8.0.  So you can now just use the Read From Text File function, right-click on it and check the Read Lines.

Too bad there isn't also a good replacement for:

C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2012\vi.lib\Utility\file.llb\Write Characters to File.vi
