in reply to File Parsing

OK, are you saying that you are checking in a specific location in a file and extracting whatever word is there, or that you are always looking for the same word in the same place? Either way, as long as you're checking in one specific place, check out the documentation for seek. That should get you at least halfway where you want to go. Once we know what kind of word you're looking for, we can work out the other half.
