      Correct, but it is still very fast with smaller files. One does
      not notice any delay or memory problems with ReadMe.txt. ;) I do
      understand your point which was well made in your original post.
      I'm sure you understood mine as well that we could retrieve a
      single line from a file without actually opening it in NoteTab.
      Perhaps we will get a read line by line function in version five.

      Happy Clip'n!
