This program searches the given txt file.And tells you how many there are. Just a reminder don't forget to put the searced txt file in C: or change it accordingly for more info or questions Silver.Lost.Raven@gmail.com have fun!!

{A MENU DRIVEN PASCAL PROGRAM to find the sequencing char array which could be
found in the rand.txt file which is in c:\ folder.For this program I have used
arrays while loops if's repeat until's and case's everything is written in the
program if its not working or if it gives a runtime error please check help(read
known bugs).If you want more info on the program contact me by
 If you want more info on me visit my website
www.johnroach.edu.tc thanks for using my program.... }
{
----------->Known bugs in this program:

1-In some compilers maxint is not understood.we can write 13000 intead of it.I
written it thinking it will work in your compiler.

2-This program has been written with dev-pascal 1.9.2 so there may be some
compiler issues i am not aware of.(I have tested this program in freepascal and
in bloodshed dev-pascal worked smoothly in those).This program gives no syntax
errors in the compilers above.

3-Some writing in the output tend to go to the next sentence this is mostly
caused of using small dos windows  please use the full screen mode for better results.
