Get from File

This worked great, I found that I had to grab a bigger chunk from the main
file and add line numbers to the end result into fld "results" and get:
0' "RmArray"
1StartArray = Array( _
2          "edit-1", "edit-2", "edit-3", "edit-4", "edit-5", _
3          "edit-6", "edit-7", "edit-8", "edit-9", "edit-00", _
4          "endof", "of", "the", "list", "")
5' "endRmArray"
I'm working to remove the not needed lines*0,1,4,5 and display in a numbered
column list for user to select the lines they need to edit, which I can do.
Theres 5 "edit-*" per line,

Any suggestions on how to get each of the 5 "edit-*" into their individual
fields from the selected row ?

and thanks for you help
Michael

-------------------------------------
on getChunk
  put fld edits into sorce
  put empty into fld results
  put "(?si)("&quote&"RmArray.*endRmArray.....)" into regExStr
  put matchchunk(sorce,regExStr,charPos1,charPos2) into success
  if success is true then
    put char charPos1 to charPos2 of sorce into dest
    else
    answer "did not find the edit string you were looking for"
    exit to top
  end if
  answer "your gift is behind door number 2"
  put dest into fld edits
  put fld edits into editsNum
put empty into tDisplayData
  put 0 into tCounter
  repeat for each line L in editsNum
    put tCounter && L & cr after tDisplayData
    add 1 to tCounter
  end getChunk
  put tDisplayData into fld results
--  breakpoint
