Python program to modify the content of a Binary File
Given a binary file that contains some sentences (space separated words), let’s write a Python program to modify or alter any particular word of the sentence.
Step 1: Searching for the word in the binary file.
Step 2: While searching in the file, the variable “pos” stores the position of file pointer record then traverse(continue) reading of the record.
Step 3: If the word to be searched exists then place the write pointer (to ending of the previous record) i.e. at pos.
Step 4: Call write() function to take the new record.
Step 5: Write the new object at the position “pos” and hence the record is updated and print “record successfully updated”.
Step 6: If the word does not exists then print “record not found”.
Let’s suppose the content of the binary file is:
