You can't really expect to post a single small line of code and the expect people here to write every thing else for you.

Why don't you try again? Put your own work into the task and not change your original requirements and expect others to code it for you.

Please do some of your own work. TRY!

DtEditorReplaceFromFile(library call)									     DtEditorReplaceFromFile(library call)

DtEditorReplaceFromFile -- replace a portion of the contents of a DtEditor widget with the contents of a file SYNOPSIS
#include <Dt/Editor.h> DtEditorErrorCode DtEditorReplaceFromFile( Widget widget, XmTextPosition startPos, XmTextPosition endPos, char *fileName); DESCRIPTION
The DtEditorReplaceFromFile function replaces part of the contents of a DtEditor widget with the contents of a file. All data following the start position and up to, but not including, the end position is replaced. If the start position and the end position are equal, the data is inserted after the end position. The character positions begin at zero and are numbered sequentially from the beginning of the text. After the replacement, the insertion cursor is positioned after the last character inserted. The widget argument specifies the DtEditor widget ID. The startPos argument specifies the starting character position of the portion to replace. The replacement begins at this character. The endPos argument specifies the ending character position of the portion to replace. The replacement ends before this character. The fileName argument is the pathname of the file relative to the local system. For a complete definition of the DtEditor widget and its associated resources, see DtEditor(3). RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, the DtEditorReplaceFromFile function returns one of the following values: DtEDITOR_NO_ERRORS The file is readable and writable. DtEDITOR_READ_ONLY_FILE The file is read only. DtEDITOR_NULLS_REMOVED The file contained embedded NULL characters, which were removed. Otherwise, if it cannot insert the data into the DtEditor widget, the function returns one of the following values: DtEDITOR_INVALID_RANGE The startPos argument is greater than the endPos argument. DtEDITOR_NONEXISTENT_FILE The file does not exist. DtEDITOR_DIRECTORY The file is a directory. DtEDITOR_CHAR_SPECIAL_FILE The file is a character-special device. DtEDITOR_BLOCK_MODE_FILE The file is a block-mode device. DtEDITOR_NO_FILE_ACCESS The file cannot be accessed. DtEDITOR_INSUFFICIENT_MEMORY Not enough system memory is available to replace the data. DtEDITOR_UNREADABLE_FILE The file is unreadable for an unspecified reason. APPLICATION USAGE
If the data is in memory, rather than a disk file, the application should use DtEditorReplace(3). SEE ALSO
