Hi, Andy, My apologies. I was not catching on that you meant in reference to file handling. I guess I should have figured that out from the context. :-) By the way, if you are using network reads, Petr K. figured out that the following works. Don't ask _me_ why. It seems to be the only exception to the rule about /skip refinement bug. Curious. It may be a solution to your problem, depending. port: open/direct/binary/no-wait/skip 100 ;skips 100 bytes The thread that outlined some of the issues can be found (watch for line break): 20tired of broken downloads%3F Good luck. --Scott Jones
