Why do I get 800A003E / Input past end of file errors?

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a003e' 
Input past end of file
 
To reproduce this error, simply create an empty (0 kb!) text file called a.txt, and place it in the same folder as the following ASP script: 
 
<% 
    set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
    set fs = fso.opentextfile(server.mappath("a.txt")) 
    f = fs.readall() 
    fs.close: set fs = nothing: set fso = nothing 
%>
 
To fix, you can simply check the size first: 
 
<% 
    set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
    set fil = fso.getFile(server.mappath("a.txt")) 
    if fil.size > 0 then 
        set fs = fso.opentextfile(server.mappath("a.txt")) 
        f = fs.readall() 
        fs.close: set fs = nothing 
    else 
        f = "File was empty" 
    end if 
    set fil = nothing 
    set fso = nothing 
 
    response.write f 
%>
 
This can also happen if you use the less efficient readline, and forget to use a while not fs.AtEndOfStream loop.
