Read part of a file at the given path.


ReadFileOffset( <path>, <offset>, <length> )
  • path: The path of the file to read.
  • offset: The offset in the file in bytes. This value is 1 based.
  • length: The amount of bytes to read.


-- Random example to read a small, probably useless, part of L1_TERRA
local FilePart = ReadFileOffset("/GameData/art/L1_TERRA.p3d", 657, 512)


Reading past the end of the file will return a shorter amount than what you requested.
