Text Files

I have managed to save the structure of a table in a text file. How can I read this file in, so I can take the first segment in each line and use it as a header on each column of the String Grid?
Also, what code can I use to search thru a text file to see how many lines are stored in that file?

Thanks

    The problem with text files is that you can only move to the front of the file or read 1 character or line. To count the lines, you need to use a while-do loop with inside it a readln() and a counter to store the number of lines. Another method is to create a temporary TStringList and store the file in there.
    As for taking parts of the file, I've posted a code in the CodePedia to take the ith part of a character delimited string. It is called StringSplit().
