I’ve done this in the past watching it instead of the result. I seem to remember eof was not useful. Maybe for a serial port it would be?
read from file ThisFile for (1024 * 1000) bytes
if it is empty then exit repeat
— do your stuff
wait 0 with messages

It was a long time ago in, I think, LC 5, so YMMV.
