in reply to Reading lines from a specific location in a text file.

Unless you know the exact position of the begin of your wanted data before you open the text file, you must read all the lines of your file, and ignore those from the first to the line you recognize as the end of the heading.

I hope that your header is much less than your data... ;-)

[ambrus]: huh... what does "SV" mean there?
[Marshall]: stevieb wish you well with water problems, my water was off all day Monday for repairs. Any more progress on .exe info problem?.
[stevieb]: Marshall: no. I commented on the thread yesterday. Visual Studio updates the tags ok, but corrupts the exe
[stevieb]: I advised the OP that a possible workaround would be to add a version function/flag that displays the required copyright/license info instead
[Marshall]: Darn! I'll look at the thread. Must not be updatinga byte count somewhere. The .exe format is a complex critter.
[stevieb]: that way, it's still "hard coded" into the exe at least, despite not being visible via Properties
