Speed

This is a postscript to my previous message regarding speed.

I'm embarrassed to say there is a simple way to employ "repeat for 
each line..." and the difference in speed is profound.

But I would nevertheless like to understand why "repeat with i = 1 to 
the number of lines in...." is so much slower and whether putting the 
list of lines in an array is the better way to go in those situations 
where "repeat for each...." is not practical.
