Hi, I tried your suggestion but does not provide what I wanted. I have a file lines.txt with the following contents: line 1 line 2 line 3 line 4 line 5 Doing the following in R3:
>> dat: deline to-string read %lines.txt
== {line 1 line 2 line 3 line 4 line 5 }
>> length? dat
== 35 Which shows clearly, that I do not get what read/lines %lines.txt did in R2=2E If I even omit the deline I get the identical results. For me deline seems to be only useful if I get a file from a different platform. Any more suggestions for the read/lines replacement in R3?? Raimund
