Reading Files

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the info.

The reason why is because I
am reading a lot of files and
was wondering if it would be
faster to write a external to read

I have no complaints and I think
it reads them very fast already
but I was doing what I could to
learn if it could be speeded up.

I am now thinking it is as fast as
I can make it so your answer will
save me a lot of wasted time.

Thanks again!
