NAME

       eof - Check for end of file condition on channel

SYNOPSIS

       eof channelId
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

       Returns  1  if an end of file condition occurred during the most recent input operation on
       channelId (such as gets), 0 otherwise.

       ChannelId must be an identifier for an open channel such as a Tcl standard channel (stdin,
       stdout,  or  stderr), the return value from an invocation of open or socket, or the result
       of a channel creation command provided by a Tcl extension.

EXAMPLES

       Read and print out the contents of a file line-by-line:

              set f [open somefile.txt]
              while {1} {
                  set line [gets $f]
                  if {[eof $f]} {
                      close $f
                      break
                  }
                  puts "Read line: $line"
              }

       Read and print out the contents of a file by fixed-size records:

              set f [open somefile.dat]
              fconfigure $f -translation binary
              set recordSize 40
              while {1} {
                  set record [read $f $recordSize]
                  if {[eof $f]} {
                      close $f
                      break
                  }
                  puts "Read record: $record"
              }
