Help needed in using FSO's, TextStreams, etc. --- Code Review and Advice requested

P: n/a
Hello All,

I'd like your comments on the code below. The sub does exactly what I want it to do but I don't feel that it is solid as all. It seems like I'm
using some VB6 code, .Net2003 code, and .Net2005 code. I'm developing in vb.net 2005.

This test sub just reads an input text file, writing out records to another text file, eliminating records that have a '99' in them (it is similar to
a CSV file).

Some of my concerns are:

1, 'writeline' does not convert to upper/lower case when keyed in - am I missing a reference?
2. Am I unnecessarily setting too many objects to '= Nothing'?
3. The 'Rename' statement seems like VB6 - isn't there a textstream rename?

I want to do this the vb.net way as much as possible, but it seems that while searching the net that I wind up with a mix of VB6, Net2003 and Net2005
code.

I appreciate your help,

Hexman

You were absolutely right to be dissatisfied with this code. It's very
old-looking and very sloppy. VB.NET can do much better. First is to turn
Option Explicit and Option Strict on. First thing you will find is that you
had both TS0 (with zero) and TSO (with capital 'o'). Option Explicit Off
allows this, which is why it's an abomination. Next is to get rid of your
forward declarations and the COM interop and use .NET framework classes for
IO.

Resulting in something like:

Option Explicit On
Option Strict On

Imports System.IO

Module Module1
Private Sub RemoveRecs()
'************************************************* ****************************
' This routine reads the .pgh file and eliminates any records that have

'************************************************* ****************************

Dim AnyChanges As Boolean = False
Dim InFileName As String = "C:\jjj.txt"
Dim OutFileName As String = "c:\kkk.txt"

Using TSI As New StreamReader(InFileName)
Using TS0 As New StreamWriter(OutFileName)
Do While Not TSI.EndOfStream
Dim strRecord As String = TSI.ReadLine()

If strRecord.Contains("99") Then
AnyChanges = True
Else
TS0.WriteLine(strRecord)
End If
Loop
TS0.Close()
End Using
TSI.Close()
End Using

If AnyChanges Then
File.Delete(InFileName)
File.Move(OutFileName, InFileName)

And just for reference, in .Net setting a COM object to Nothing does
not clean it up. For COM objects you must call
Marshal.ReleaseComObject(FSO).

Thank you both, David & Chris,

Your code is well written and concise! Great example!

I'll certainly take your advice on options Explicit & Strict and the forward declarations. As for the COM interop, I'll have to see what that really
is (I don't have a deep background in VB). As for .Net Framework (2005), it seems like all the books I've browsed at Borders mix VB6, .Net 2003, and
..Net 2005.

If you know of any .Net 2005 specific books/websites/etc. that will show me only the .Net 2005 way, please let me know. The one other thing is that I
don't read technical books cover to cover. I usually find a chapter that applies to the task at hand and try to adapt their solutions to my code.
(Maybe I better start reading the "Architecture" parts first!!!)

Thanks again,

Hexman

how DARE you use Com in .NET?

I mean seriously what the heck is wrong with you?

you should just rewrite everything in PHP; Microsoft has given up on
VB.net; they should be making an announcement soon
I should know; I have a friend that works there they told me that
they're killing VB.net 2002, 2003 AND 2005

So when the next version of Visual Studio comes out and includes Visual Basic--and
it will, since I've already tried out an early version of it--will you promise
to leave these forums with the shame of a false prophet and never post again?
One can only hope.

In the VS configuration area, you can force VB to always start new projects
with Option Strict On and Option Explicit On. This way you won't forget to
do it yourself.

Microsoft 'blessed us' with a 3 year delay on VB in the DOTNET world
just so that they could stick a giant pink DILDO named C# up their

fuck Microsoft and fuck C#

P: n/a
But I like VB.NET, and I know others who do as well. I've attended conferences
with hundreds of people who are as excited about it as I am.

Your 90% statistic seems high, but I wouldn't doubt that well over 50% of
VB programmers still use VB6 or VBA. And it's that VBA component that is
the key. Many who use VB don't "really" use VB at all. They use VBA, because
they are not really interested in programming. They are interested in automating
Office and other applications that house VBA. They are essentially business
users who need enhanced macro capabilities.

Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with Microsoft keeping VBA around as
a macro tool. When they switched from WordBasic to VBA, it was quite an ordeal.
But keeping VBA and promoting VB.NET are two different things.

Like I said, if you (or anyone) were truly serious about the benefits of
VB6 or VBA, you would do something about it from a business activity perspective.
Anyone can gripe and moan and mock. Doing something positive about the situation
would be something I could respect.

Tell you what: If you agree to stop the bellyaching and instead come up with
a serious business plan that engages the future of VB6/VBA, and dialog with
Microsoft about it in a professional manner, I would be open to writing something
(i.e., books or articles) for an enhanced Classic VB product. Other authors
would do so as well. If you have a professional product with a viable future,
then you will be able to post in the forums something that others will actually
want to read.

LISTEN YOU COCKSUCKING BITCH

I am a _REAL_ vb6 developer.. even though I only use 'Microsoft Access'
as my primary development platform.

does it somehow make me less of a programmer?

eat a dick, buddy

I don't deal with DLL hell.
I dont deal with ActiveX hell.
I dont deal with closing connections; and I dont deal with opening
connections.

It's ALL AUTOMATIC FOR ME.

and VB.net IS DOTNOT a valid replacement for Microsoft Access.

I can just flatout OUT-DEVELOP you cocksuckers with one hand tied
behind my back.

Small Simple Data Entry And Reporting

Does VB 2005 support it?
I sure dont think so.. I dont think that Microsoft has really figured
out their whole SSRS marketing MESSAGE yet; but it's sure as hell not
as powerful as Microsoft Access

80% of the software development in the WORLD is in Microsoft Excel
and you guys don't see the problem here?

The problem is that Microsoft can't compete with itself; in the
question of Microsoft Access vs VB 2005; Im sorry but there is NO
COMPETITION for ROI.

Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with Microsoft keeping VBA around as
a macro tool. When they switched from WordBasic to VBA, it was quite an ordeal.
But keeping VBA and promoting VB.NET are two different things.

Like I said, if you (or anyone) were truly serious about the benefits of
VB6 or VBA, you would do something about it from a business activity perspective.
Anyone can gripe and moan and mock. Doing something positive about the situation
would be something I could respect.

Tell you what: If you agree to stop the bellyaching and instead come up with
a serious business plan that engages the future of VB6/VBA, and dialog with
Microsoft about it in a professional manner, I would be open to writing something
(i.e., books or articles) for an enhanced Classic VB product. Other authors
would do so as well. If you have a professional product with a viable future,
then you will be able to post in the forums something that others will actually
want to read.

how dare you say 'im not a real programmer'

just because I prefer office dev?

it's ridiculous
we _ARE_ interested in programming.. but crap like OOP and XML and
other bullshit 'Marketing Crap' do not provide decent ROI.

I mean seriously here.
Does OOP and XML and ADO.net _MAKE_ME_MORE_POWERFUL_?

Does it make my job EASIER?
Does it make me a faster programmer?

IT SURE DOESNT

I build more complex apps in an hour then you do in a week.
And I dont have to deal with DLL hell... I dont have to deal with
deploying ActiveX controls; I dont have to deal with 3 tier apps.

Everything works perfectly using Access Data Projects.

it doesn't make me a Junior Developer-- it makes me a FOCUSED DEVELOPER
if VB.net had a DECENT ROI then maybe I would be a sellout

but as it is; it is unnecessary BLOATWARE

I have been informed by a headhunting agency that .Net
programmers have a 97.5% employment rate. That means
there are only 2.5% unemployed, most of them by choice.
Judging by the number of headhunters that continue to
show up at my local .Net User Group meetings, I think
your percentages are off, or a lot more VB6 programmers
are going to move up to VB2005 to stay employed.

P: n/a
yeah that's funny.. you called Robert Half a headhunting agency?

ROFL

do you even know what you're talking about? do you know the difference
between a 'headhunting agency' and a 'consulting firm' and a 'temp
agency'? ROFL

my friend works at Robert Half and told me that there is only a 25%
_EMPLOYMENT_ rate for VB.net programmers-- we are talking about VB.net
here and not C# right? because your sample was talking about '.NET
Programmers' and not 'VB.net Programmers'

I believe that C# is enormously popular.. 10 times more popular than
VB.net will ever be. mainly because Microsoft shafted VB because they
were scared of a little tiny company from California... I mean..
Microsoft should have given a pair of wooden nickels to Boeing; had
them purchase Sun Microsystems and dissolve the company; piece meal
sell it off and kill JAVA.

it would have cost about a billion dollars to do.

BUT NO, MICROSOFT HAD TO THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER; THEY
HAD TO 'INVENT A NEW PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR NO REASON JUST BECAUSE
JAVA / C++ FUCKTARDS WONT TOUCH ANYTHING NAMED VB'

they just blatantly killed their most popular programmign language;
rather than FIX THE MARKETING PROBLEM.

for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=vb = 44 jobs
http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=C# = 178 jobs

why is it that 2/3rds of the colleges / universities in the area are
teaching VB.net to everyone- when there obviously isn't a huge demand
for it?
Have you ever tried to go to a community college and sign up for C#
class? Most of the colleges EVERYWHERE dont even offer C# coursework.

and for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=sql = 431 jobs
so it's obvious to me that VB / VB.net means jack shit to my career and
I can continue to 'coast' on my SQL Skillz
Please; tell me now-- why do I need to run out and do a bunch of OOP
_CRAP_ again?
I make more money doing SQL and I don't see the point in learning THREE
LANGUAGES in order to be half the developer I was 5 years ago lol

when microsoft does this:

c) _EVERY_SINGLE_PROGRAMMING_EXAMPLE_ is in both C# and VB.net
d) vb newsgroup should be public.microsoft.vb.. not this

e) it isn't verbose like 2002,2003,2005
f) i can copy and paste datasets in SSRS in between reports
g) they support vb6
h) they support developing new COM components
i) they support existing ActiveX controls
if all those come true; I might lay off...

but until then; their backwards ass crap; i've just about had enough

Who said anything about Robert Half?

Gee, if your numbers are right, I guess I'd better go learn C#.

Have a nice day.

news:11**********************@l12g2000cwl.googlegr oups.com...
yeah that's funny.. you called Robert Half a headhunting agency?

ROFL

do you even know what you're talking about? do you know the difference
between a 'headhunting agency' and a 'consulting firm' and a 'temp
agency'? ROFL

my friend works at Robert Half and told me that there is only a 25%
_EMPLOYMENT_ rate for VB.net programmers-- we are talking about VB.net
here and not C# right? because your sample was talking about '.NET
Programmers' and not 'VB.net Programmers'

I believe that C# is enormously popular.. 10 times more popular than
VB.net will ever be. mainly because Microsoft shafted VB because they
were scared of a little tiny company from California... I mean..
Microsoft should have given a pair of wooden nickels to Boeing; had
them purchase Sun Microsystems and dissolve the company; piece meal
sell it off and kill JAVA.

it would have cost about a billion dollars to do.

BUT NO, MICROSOFT HAD TO THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER; THEY
HAD TO 'INVENT A NEW PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR NO REASON JUST BECAUSE
JAVA / C++ FUCKTARDS WONT TOUCH ANYTHING NAMED VB'

they just blatantly killed their most popular programmign language;
rather than FIX THE MARKETING PROBLEM.

for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=vb = 44 jobs
http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=C# = 178 jobs

why is it that 2/3rds of the colleges / universities in the area are
teaching VB.net to everyone- when there obviously isn't a huge demand
for it?
Have you ever tried to go to a community college and sign up for C#
class? Most of the colleges EVERYWHERE dont even offer C# coursework.

and for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=sql = 431 jobs
so it's obvious to me that VB / VB.net means jack shit to my career and
I can continue to 'coast' on my SQL Skillz
Please; tell me now-- why do I need to run out and do a bunch of OOP
_CRAP_ again?
I make more money doing SQL and I don't see the point in learning THREE
LANGUAGES in order to be half the developer I was 5 years ago lol

Microsoft betrayed us all; and I will never vote for Microsoft again.

i just want to know WHY it takes me literally 30 seconds to launch
help-- when I'm plugged in.

and 5 minutes when I'm disconnected.

it's like.. visual; stduio is too stupid to detect when I'm plugged in;
and it sits there and looks for the internet for literally 5 minutes;
it prompts you a dozne times..

and the bottom line is that help doesnt' work for jackshit.

I am in a properties box named 'Sizing' and i hit F1 and I go to a help
file that discusses the image box not the 'sizing method'

it just takes too long; it doesn't work.
and it doesn't give me the right results.

I want my vb6 back!!!

when you're on a laptop and you hit F1 then it takes a full 5 minutes

it's just a shitty shitty product; the people that built this piece of

well... i'll make you a deal buddy

when microsoft does this:

a) microsoft.com/vb should GO SOMEWHERE
b) NO vs crashes in a month for me
c) _EVERY_SINGLE_PROGRAMMING_EXAMPLE_ is in both C# and VB.net
d) vb newsgroup should be public.microsoft.vb.. not this
'microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb' crap
e) it isn't verbose like 2002,2003,2005
f) i can copy and paste datasets in SSRS in between reports
g) they support vb6
h) they support developing new COM components
i) they support existing ActiveX controls
if all those come true; I might lay off...

but until then; their backwards ass crap; i've just about had enough
of it

of course; MS 'doesn't have the resources to test this type of thing

aaron kompf and his wife went to a fantasy party with some friends. He
was disguised as Master Programmer and spent the hole night pestering
friends and absolute strangers alike: "Fuck Ya, asshole! VB.Net sucks.
I'm a real programmer. I'm a real programmer! I'M A REAL PROGRAMMER!".
At the first lights of dawn the party is over, but aaron kampf doesn't
feel like coming back home. He drives his wife and friends in a crazy
ride by the outskirts of town, where hard working programmers were just
waking up to another hard working day.

It was 5 am when they arrived at a bar where some programmers were
having their first meal, while others were just having a last drink
after a long night shift. aaron kumpf stops the car, screaming "Oh, my,
fucking, god, those are real programmers over there!", and leaving
alarmed wife and friends behind, he enters the bar, still using his
costume. He shouts: "Hi, LOSERS! Eat my DICK! VB.NET is a DOOMED
LANGUAGE! GO LEARN PHP!". Without warning, the nearby programmer hits
him with a punch in the face. Spitting teeth and blood, he still
screeches "I'M A REAL PROGRAMMER, FUCKERS!! EAT MY DICK! EAT MY DICK!
EAT MY ...!" when another programmer smashes his head with a bottle. He
falls down. In a moment, everyone in the room is kicking him. It's a
gruesome, violent, sad -- but almost delightfull -- view.

The wife screams to their friends: "Hey people, they're killing him!!!
Won't you do nothing!?". The friends stare at her with blank faces. The
wife lights up a cigarrette and reclines calmly in the passengers seat.
"Ok, let's give them some five minutes more..."

According to Evans Data's Fall 2006 North American Development Survey,
overall, developer use of the Visual Basic family has dropped off by 35
percent since last spring.

Moreover, Evans said, "As expected, developers are finally leaving VB6
and earlier versions; they're also leaving VB.NET; which is down by 26
percent. This means Java now holds the market penetration lead at 45
percent, followed by C/C++ at 40 percent, and C# at 32 percent."

ROFL

do you even know what you're talking about? do you know the difference
between a 'headhunting agency' and a 'consulting firm' and a 'temp

my friend works at Robert Half and told me that there is only a 25%
_EMPLOYMENT_ rate for VB.net programmers-- we are talking about VB.net
here and not C# right? because your sample was talking about '.NET
Programmers' and not 'VB.net Programmers'

I believe that C# is enormously popular.. 10 times more popular than
VB.net will ever be. mainly because Microsoft shafted VB because they
were scared of a little tiny company from California... I mean..
Microsoft should have given a pair of wooden nickels to Boeing; had
them purchase Sun Microsystems and dissolve the company; piece meal
sell it off and kill JAVA.

it would have cost about a billion dollars to do.

BUT NO, MICROSOFT HAD TO THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER; THEY
HAD TO 'INVENT A NEW PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR NO REASON JUST BECAUSE
JAVA / C++ FUCKTARDS WONT TOUCH ANYTHING NAMED VB'

they just blatantly killed their most popular programmign language;
rather than FIX THE MARKETING PROBLEM.

for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=vb = 44 jobs
http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=C# = 178 jobs

why is it that 2/3rds of the colleges / universities in the area are
teaching VB.net to everyone- when there obviously isn't a huge demand
for it?
Have you ever tried to go to a community college and sign up for C#
class? Most of the colleges EVERYWHERE dont even offer C# coursework.

and for the record..

http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/jjj?query=sql = 431 jobs
so it's obvious to me that VB / VB.net means jack shit to my career and
I can continue to 'coast' on my SQL Skillz
Please; tell me now-- why do I need to run out and do a bunch of OOP
_CRAP_ again?
I make more money doing SQL and I don't see the point in learning THREE

dude that's the most ridiculous statistic I've ever heard of in my
life.

I think that I could jam 98% of my cock in your mouth.. does that make
you a girl?

I have been informed by a headhunting agency that .Net
programmers have a 97.5% employment rate. That means
there are only 2.5% unemployed, most of them by choice.
Judging by the number of headhunters that continue to
show up at my local .Net User Group meetings, I think
your percentages are off, or a lot more VB6 programmers
are going to move up to VB2005 to stay employed.

people like to use VB.net?

ROFL

what universe do you come from?

show me some stats.. and I'll show you some stats that say '90% of
vb
developers still use VB6'

I would notify the folks at Monster.com and craigslist.org/job
because
I sure don't see many VB.net _JOBS_

Except for item #d (which is just a side effect of your overall bad
feeling),
I fully understand your frustration. (By the way,
"microsoft.com/vbasic"
does go to the Visual Basic page; I agree that "microsoft.com/vb"
should
as well.)

Concerning items #g through #i: I can tell you how to become rich
beyond
your wildest dreams. Start a company that fully supports those who
wish
to
continue with VB6. Make a name for yourself, and then approach
Microsoft
about licensing the VB6 product and its source code for support and
enhancement
purposes. Everyone always says Microsoft only cares about money; go
ahead
and prove it. Convince them that it is in their financial best
interest
to
allow your new company to extend Visual Basic Classic.

You can draw a lot more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.
Using
the keyboard to constantly browbeat another product that, frankly,
a
lot
of people actually like to use is insanity. These forums have no
influence
on Microsoft's business decisions. But a well-crafted business plan
just
might.

well... i'll make you a deal buddy

when microsoft does this:

a) microsoft.com/vb should GO SOMEWHERE
b) NO vs crashes in a month for me
c) _EVERY_SINGLE_PROGRAMMING_EXAMPLE_ is in both C# and VB.net
d) vb newsgroup should be public.microsoft.vb.. not this
'microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb' crap
e) it isn't verbose like 2002,2003,2005
f) i can copy and paste datasets in SSRS in between reports
g) they support vb6
h) they support developing new COM components
i) they support existing ActiveX controls
if all those come true; I might lay off...

but until then; their backwards ass crap; i've just about had
enough
of it

I assure you that aaron is NOT master programmer

I should know.. I'm sleeping with both of them lol

btw

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2065392,00.asp

According to Evans Data's Fall 2006 North American Development Survey,
overall, developer use of the Visual Basic family has dropped off by 35
percent since last spring.

Moreover, Evans said, "As expected, developers are finally leaving VB6
and earlier versions; they're also leaving VB.NET; which is down by 26
percent. This means Java now holds the market penetration lead at 45
percent, followed by C/C++ at 40 percent, and C# at 32 percent."

aaron kompf and his wife went to a fantasy party with some friends. He
was disguised as Master Programmer and spent the hole night pestering
friends and absolute strangers alike: "Fuck Ya, asshole! VB.Net sucks.
I'm a real programmer. I'm a real programmer! I'M A REAL PROGRAMMER!".
At the first lights of dawn the party is over, but aaron kampf doesn't
feel like coming back home. He drives his wife and friends in a crazy
ride by the outskirts of town, where hard working programmers were just
waking up to another hard working day.

It was 5 am when they arrived at a bar where some programmers were
having their first meal, while others were just having a last drink
after a long night shift. aaron kumpf stops the car, screaming "Oh, my,
fucking, god, those are real programmers over there!", and leaving
alarmed wife and friends behind, he enters the bar, still using his
costume. He shouts: "Hi, LOSERS! Eat my DICK! VB.NET is a DOOMED
LANGUAGE! GO LEARN PHP!". Without warning, the nearby programmer hits
him with a punch in the face. Spitting teeth and blood, he still
screeches "I'M A REAL PROGRAMMER, FUCKERS!! EAT MY DICK! EAT MY DICK!
EAT MY ...!" when another programmer smashes his head with a bottle. He
falls down. In a moment, everyone in the room is kicking him. It's a
gruesome, violent, sad -- but almost delightfull -- view.

The wife screams to their friends: "Hey people, they're killing him!!!
Won't you do nothing!?". The friends stare at her with blank faces. The
wife lights up a cigarrette and reclines calmly in the passengers seat.
"Ok, let's give them some five minutes more..."

how dare you accuse me of being a LIAR?
I didn't call you a liar, I just pointed out a flaw.
i can't post anything through any interface that shows up on ms

they censored me even before I started swearing
With the behaviour you've show here, I can imagine you've been denied
access to MS owned servers. that does not mean you're denied access to

As before, your sexual fantasies are of no interest to me.

Get some valium, get a life and move on. There's no sense in giving
yourself a heartattack over this.

you mother fucking stupid ass bitch you specifically said 'ms cant
censor these newsgroups'

and Im here to tell you from first hand experience that they DO CENSOR
and they STARTED CENSORING LONG BEFORE I STARTED SWEARING.

I just posted several directly to news.microsoft.com through MSIMN
(outlook express) under the alias 'jello_world' these showed up
perfectly

anything-- anything in the world-- that I post under my typical aliases
is stricken from the server immediately.

that, my friend constitutes censorship; and this is a testcase that
illustrates these facts.

you, my mother fucking asshole --- are calling me a liar
and I dare you to say those words to my face, fucknut
