I'm reading a binary file a character at a time and looking for the 
end-of-file marker so I know when to stop reading but the read terminates 
before the entire file is read.  There seems to be an eof marker in the 
file that is not at the end of the file.  CharToNum(EOF) returns a 4 
which could appear at places other than the end of the file, right?

Is the following correct?

repeat forever
  read from file sourcefile for 1 character
  if the result is "eof" then exit repeat
  put it into var1
end repeat
