Just to follow up: When importing foreign language files, "file" isn't
working. Non-ascii characters show up as question marks and textDecode
Using "binfile" and then textDecoding does import correctly but then
text chunking by lines fails. Line endings are imported as 2 bytes using
byteToNum 13,10 (in that order) which isn't the line ending standard for
any OS. I have to replace those specifically.
These are text files saved as UTF-8, created on Mac OS X and imported on
Mac OS X. I'm using LC 7.0.6.
