#39453 I tried to read a file of about 1400 bytes but file.read() returns only leading 1024 bytes.

Just the following code prints 1024 while the file "sample.txt" is 1400 bytes.

Code: Select all  file.open("sample.txt","r")
  res = file.read()

Is this known limitation or bug?

The version I use is:

#39578 Yes, file.read() will return up to max 1024 bytes. This seems to be intended according to the code.
I guess you'd need to read and concatenate the chunks until file.read() returns nil.
