Hi there,

I want to read all data from a binary file (with package Rstreams). I
tried the following function (small piece of code):

readdata <- function (file) {
    # open file
    s <- openstream(file, "read")
    # read int values 
    while (s$position <= s$size) {
    readint(s, 1, 2) -> type


and got the following error:

> Error in while (s$position <= s$size) { : missing value where logical needed

Is it possible to read data from the start to the finish of a stream?
