is it possible to readfromfile line x to y

I am trying to parse this massive html page of unicode characters.

https://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html

and livecode is choking up when I read in the whole file and try to parse
each line using a loop.  I get a hard crash in the debugger and a endless
loop when debugger is off.

I will report this afterwards.

But as a workaround I'd like to

"read from file line 1 to 5 of file"

The examples are just not helping me to get the right syntax.  Can someone
help me?

I'm parsing lines.

Thanks,

Tom
