Hi guys,its my first time here in this forum.Firstly,nice to meet you all.I would like to request help for my assignment as I am having difficulties at one part of my assignment. I am trying to read from a file that has 3 columns,and I only need the middle column,So I declared 2 extra variables to store the left and right column while another variable(for my input)is used for the middle column.Attached is my input file and below is my code(reading part).Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks for taking your time to read my post.

I am using modelsim,and when I stimulate the code,It shows the input as 000000...,I believe this happened because halfway through the input file,The left and right column is empty while the middle column(The input that I want)is continuing,I tested by using the left Column as my input and just store the other 2 columns(middle,right)into variables and it works. So was wondering if it is possible to read the middle column although the other two columns are empty? That looks similar to my assignment too,just that my input file is much longer and the left/right columns goes empty through halfway of the input file Thanks for reading and looking forward to your reply!
Hi, Maybe this will be useful. There are few assumptions regarding the input file syntax. Seems to work ok with yours input8.txt .
entity tb is
architecture arch of tb is
file OFile:text open read_mode is "input8.txt";
file OFile2:text open write_mode is "output.txt";
variable OLine : line;
variable OLine2 : line;
variable temp_str : string(1 to 26);
variable what : boolean:= false;
read (OLine, temp_str,what);
-- to skip empty lines
if what then
-- report temp_str(10 to 26);
write(OLine2, temp_str(10 to 26));
